Equi-Ed, Inc.
October 31, 2010

Equi-Ed is a physical and emotional oasis for me. Thanks to my granddaughter, who is a passionate equestrian, I began taking lessons at Equi-Ed a few months ago. In addition to the normal aging process (I am 67 years old), nine surgeries have meant a significant loss of suppleness and chronic pain. With the knowledge and compassionate support of certified trainer Max, physical therapist Diane, and trusty sidekick Jennifer, I am beginning to communicate with my body again by learning to communicate with the horse. What fun! What Equi-Ed accomplishes with limited financial resources is nothing short of amazing! They support us with professionalism, consistency, and always good grace. My riding lesson is the highlight of my week!

The Great!

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

Improved suppleness and pain control in my own body.

Ways to make it better...

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

Expand the program to develop a specialized riding component for senior citizens to maintain health, strength, suppleness, coordination, mental alertness, and possibly even age appropriate competition.
