Envision is a wonderful place where adults and children can escape from the stresses of their daily lives and get back in touch with who they really are. I have watched communication between family members improve through the use of therapeutic riding and team building activities. I have seen children with disabilities come out of their shells and engage with both the horses and the staff. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to volunteer with such an incredible organization that truly makes a difference in the lives of so many people. I know Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship has a bright future, as staff members and volunteers work tirelessly to expand the reach of this program, while still providing individualized care to every client.

As a volunteer I have been with envision for seven years now. But I was also a client of envision for two years. Due to the trauma I had experience, I started getting involved with the wrong group of people in eighth grade. I went into high school as a confused, angry and very insecure teenage girl. As if high school wasn't hard enough without adding anything in. I am became reclusive and later on suicidal.

I can honestly say without a doubt, I would not be here if the wonderful people at envision and the horses hadn't intervened in my life. I did equine assited life coaching for majority of my therapy. For those who have any doubts that horses can make this big of a impact, I'm telling you they can and they do.

I am very proud to be apart of what envision is doing and able to call them my family. I witness lives being changed everytime I work with clients, smiles that are priceless.
