Review for Equi-Kids Therapeutic Riding Program, Virginia Beach, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a sidewalker volunteer since the new facility opened in 2009. I enjoyed the training that was given before I started. Everything is organized so the volunteers know what to expect before the riders show up and then the lesson is also organized so the riders may enjoy their session. I love being able to interact with the same riders each week and get to know them and their families a little bit better. Equi Kids is a beautiful and well cared for facility that really tries hard to provide a wonderful service for disabled children and now vets!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen the smiles and giggles on kids faces when they are having fun on horses. Plus I have seen kids bodies relax and limber up while they ride on top of a horse.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The group lessons could use a few more entertaining games for the kids and the sidewalkers to keep things interesting. Maybe some music? musical chairs?
