My volunteer work at SIRE started as a selfish act on my behalf. I was relocated here from out of state and needed something to do with myself. I was originally drawn to the stables because of the horses and it was there I was introduced to SIRE. I was truely inspired by the program, its volunteers, its instructors,the horses and most of all its clients...The program brings everyone together to work toward the same goal in developing a better quality of life. Surprisingly, is isn`t just for the clients, I think I speak for all of us when I say the program has enriched all of our lives in so many ways. There is nothing more rewarding than having a purpose in life and making a difference in the lives of others.
I have been volunteering with SIRE for the past 5 years. I have watched them grow with each year. The level of dedication is wonderful. The progress of the riders inspires me every time I'm there.
Thank you! Though I'm staff now, I did spend several years volunteering and loved every minute! I like having the ability to focus on horses,riders or both. Thanks for being such a faithful volunteer!
