most of the staff was friendly and helpful but one in particular was very insensitive to my and other riders emotional needs.

CORRAL is really changing the trajectory of young women's lives. Girls who are referred to CORRAL have had a tough-go at life and are often really hurting . CORRAL provides a support system to shepherd them through middle and high-school and into college.

The CORRAL Riding Academy endeavors to serve -- with love, commitment, and fairness -- all the young women (teenage girls) that are referred to our program in Wake County, NC.

CORRAL's work is rewarding. The organization has existed for the last 7 years (founded in 2008), and has dutifully served 100s of kids and families in the are with wrap around services.

As a Board Member, I can say with confidence that our organization remains committed to serving the youth in our County with fairness, consistency, and respect.

Sincerely,
Rob Currey

CORRAL really helped my daughter for over two years. She has had a difficult life and really needed "a leg up," however, we were never made aware that they could remove her from the program without explanation and without warning until we received a letter through FedEX stating that they would no longer provide services for her, effective immediately. We had to pick her up from school and tell her that instead of driving directly to CORRAL for tutoring and therapy, we were taking her home because she wasn't allowed back. She cried and cried. "Mommy," she said, "I didn't do anything wrong on Saturday. " It was pitiful. This experience has been psychologically damaging and I question whether it would have been better to never have enrolled her.

I have never heard of an organization that would kick somebody out without warning or explanation. This SHOULD be especially true for a Christian organization that provides services to vulnerable girls.
