Review for Sonrise Equestrian Foundation, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I served as a Summer intern for SonRise spending 40+ hours a week. What an amazing experience.

The volunteers are some of the best I have ever met, always positive, always ready to learn, and always giving their all for SonRise, the horses, and most importantly the children. They are always working hard to make SonRise the BEST it can be day in and day out.

The clients served are of the greatest variety of any of the places I have had the opportunity to learn from. Yet the horses are prepared for anything that comes at them, whether the day involves just grooming, games, or actual riding lessons. These horses are some of the most well-trained horses I have seen working at a therapeutic riding facility.

The mentors are incredible. I had the opportunity to observe each of them and the connections they were able to make with the students as well as the horses. I was always impressed with their ability to assess and adapt games and lessons to each students abilities, encouraging them to grow and try new things, stretching their current limitations.

I would recommend SonRise to any one looking for a wonderful group of people to welcome them, horses with the biggest hearts I have ever seen, and the chance to learn and grow around horses.
