Review for Equi-Ed, Inc., Santa Rosa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Equi-Ed has been a part of our daughter's life for over 7 years now. In spite of cognitive disabilities, she is able to ride horses at Equi-Ed competently, demonstrate the ability to follow directions, and connect with these gentle animals in a way that empowers her on a weekly basis. The staff at Equi-Ed is knowledgeable, patient and accepting of differences. I would highly recommend this incredible program to children and adults alike! Equi-Ed is a place where amazing things happen...and lives are changed!

Review for Equi-Ed, Inc., Santa Rosa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our daughter has been riding at Equi-ed for over three years now. We were so happy to have found this wonderful place! She had previously been enrolled in therapeutic riding at another facility, but was told she had gone as far as she could. Being intellectually disabled, we all felt our daughter needed to continue her connection to riding, being with people who understood her, and of course, experiencing unconditional acceptance from these gentle horses. Equi-Ed provides all of the above and does so with expertise. Our daughter always looks forward to her lessons which improves her self-esteem immensely. The staff is amazing and everything our daughter learns from her riding instruction carries over to many other areas of her life. We are so grateful for this non-profit organization and hope that it can grow and expand with the generous support of others.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing our daughter's improved self-esteem, coordination and attentional skills.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

build a covered arena so that Equi-Ed could continue to provide their very important work all year long.

Role:  General Member of the Public & We support Equi-Ed through fundraising and support our daughter's efforts to improve her skills. .
