I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
One of my closest family friends is a young teenager named Christine, she has cerebral palsy. I watched her go from not even being able to hold her upper body straight while mounted on the horse, to not only hold he upper body up straight without assistence, but also use her legs to ask the horse to go forward. This is the most inspiriing organization I've ever seen. I've witnessed so many people reach and surpass their goals.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I wouldn't change a thing! No ones perfect, if anything that's the most importent lesson we learn at Saddle Up. They have systems set up that make organizing students and lesson times almost painless, and the calm atmosphere we present is almost unheard of anywhere else. Mrs. Kellie and all the volunteers put in countless hours so the organization runs smoothly, and 99.9% of the time it does. (after all, horses will be horses.)
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Would you recommend this group to a friend?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
I would change abosloutely nothing.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
It made me realize that even someone whose still in highschool can dedicate time and effort into something productive and life changing, not just for myself but selflessly for others who need it most.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
it makes me feel as if I'm making a difference, maybe not world wide but atleast in the hundreds of lives that this organization touches. There is nothing more inspiring and rewarding.
