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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at EquiKids for 5 years. EquiKids is hands down the most rewarding thing I have ever done. The staff, the volunteers, instructors, riders and their families get to share in such an inspiring journey together, it is simply amazing . I never miss a chance to tell my friends, family and co-workers what a caring organization EquiKids is. I walk into the barn, hear the nickers from the horses ( the best horses in Virginia) and friendly chatter among the volunteers and staff, and I truly feel like I belong, that I'm welcome, and I am appreciated.

I see no change needed, just more public awareness of what a difference the EquiKids program makes in Virginia Beach and make sure it is taken care of so it can continue it' s mission.
