I volunteer for this program and absolutely love it! I would recommend it to everyone! It is such an inspiring and incredible organization. Everyone is so happy, the staff is well-experienced and the kids always have a good time! Volunteering here always makes my week. Come check it out!
My son is a 9 year old with Down syndrome. We are unable to afford hippo therapy for our kiddo but Palomino Mounted Patrol makes it possible for him to receive the therapy at no expense. They help many families in the community and is a wonderful organization.
My son was afraid to get on the horse the first time and now, because of their patience with him, he isn't afraid and looks forward to it!
