A great chance to help in the raising and education of children with disabilities and helping adults with disabilities. Meet great people all sharing the same goals. A chance to be around horses and their effect upon those who ride in the program, as well as how the horses themselves will adjust their temperament with a child acting out.

I have been volunteering at Project R.I.D.E. for over 10 years. This organization offers a very specialized program that becomes an outlet, a place of growth and learning and a source of freedom and release for our wonderful riders. For many of our riders, this is the only place or activity specifically designed just for them,;where they can feel special and free of judgement. There are very few organizations like Project R.I.D.E. and I am very proud to be a part of such a wonderful program and hope to continue to be part of it's family of volunteers for many years to come.

My daughter starting riding at Project RIDE almost two years ago. She is nonverbal but when she interacts with the horses her face tells the story. Everyone knows us there. They have become part of our exrended family. Recently I became a board member so I can give back to the organization that has given so much to my daughter.
