Heartland Therapeutic Riding, Inc.
August 13, 2012

Heartland has been personally enlightening in so many ways. It has provided me an opportunity to give back to my community, and provide an incredible service to a set of individuals that truly deserves my attention. I find that when I am actively involved with this organization, I lose sight of who is serving who, and who is benefiting from my service. Likely, I am receiving more than those I assist. Many thanks to this wonderful organization for allowing me this opportunity.

The Great!
