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

Rating: 5 stars  

My now 34 year old daughter began riding in a therapeutic riding program 22 years ago. I was so impressed with the positive results that she achieved from her riding! Strength, coordination, balance...... and most importantly, the gumption to "be in charge", "be the leader" in order to direct the 1/2 ton animal that she was riding. I found Equi-Ed and began volunteering for them. As a NARHA Premier Accredited program, Equi-Ed taught me how to provide safe and fun horsemanship and riding lessons to people with specal needs. After 10+ years with Equi-Ed and after moving to another state, I have now begun a small therapeutic riding program here, and every day count my blessings for having been "brought up" by such a wonderful program as Equi-Ed, which has now given me the skills to carry on in serving more people with special needs.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I volunteered and did everything from mucking paddocks, feeding, grooming, sidewalking, horse handling, organizing, board member.
