SQUARE PEG FOUNDATION
November 16, 2010
An avid rider as a child, I started riding with Square Peg after a lapse of over twenty years. Joell's unique approach (always supportive, constantly adaptive) and her amazing horses (former dressage champs, jumpers, racehorses and polo ponies-all donated) provided me with different ways to learn and grow as a rider. I ended up adopting one of Square Peg's horses. A former dressage champ, he enjoyed a second life as a lesson horse for Square Peg and now, lords it over every coyote and creature he meets on the trails around my house. My daughter, a neurotypical child, has found a place in Square Peg that both challenges her intellect and accepts her eccentricities.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
SP has brought QUALITY horses back into my life and continues to teach my daughter not only the skills necessary to work with horses but compassion and care for the animals themselves.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would hire more help around the ranch so that Greg, Sigornery and Joell could do more of their amazing work with the kids!
Board Member & I currently serve on Square Peg's board.
