I met Sarah several years ago and have gone to a fundraiser event. It was fun. I think Dusty's Riders is a great program and donate somewhat regularly. I also appreciate that my employer's charitable arm has Dusty's Riders recognized in their database so I could get my donations matched.

Dustys Riders provides kids the opportunity to commune with horses and nature that they would otherwise never be able to do. The benefits to their self esteem is unquantifiable and expands their perspective of the world and the possibilities it holds for them.
