My daughter will be finishing the progam this year as she is now too old and this program serves children. I cannot say enough about the wonderful people who coordinate this free program. All money donated goes directly to care for the horses. All people working are volunteers. My daughter has absolutley been enriched by her riding. She gained motor skills as well as self confidence and developed a social network with other disabled children.
