SADDLE UP RIDING CLUB INC
February 17, 2011
I have MS and learned about Hippotherapy. I went to barn about an hour away. That didn't work out because of the distance. I tried to find a program closer to home. There was none. Then I read about Saddle Up Riding Club starting up in the local paper and immediately got involved. The barn is a mile away. I was there at the beginnning 3 years ago and still going. It is haven of tranquility in the city. The fellow riders I have gotten to know are as thrilled as I am to have the hippotherapy program so close to home. The benefits are tremendous. My legs are stretched. My trunk is strengthened. My balance is tested and improved. I have young friends and gown up friends. The commraderie is a valueable as the physical therapy. The atmosphere is as beneficial to my mind as the therapy is to my body. I look forward to my saturdays at Saddle Up all week. It keeps me postive during the work week. I am lucky to have Saddle Up in my life.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have gained mobility, I have better attitude about my disease. I feel empowered because I am not afraid to ride a horse that others wouldn't even consider. I have made friends that understand my challenges.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would win the lottery and give the funds to Saddle Up. There are a lot of creative ideas and good people to make it happen. The stumbling block is money.
