Review for Equine Dreams, Sandwich, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at Equine Dreams since 2006. That makes 6 years. And every year I witness more miracles. Yes, this therapeutic riding center is outstanding. I know that since the late 1990's this center has been in operation helping individuals with special needs. All participants in the program are charged NOTHING for its services. And it is run totally by volunteers from the CEO on down. One miracle is that no participant has EVER paid a fee. Another is that with the same philosophy Equine Dreams grows every year. Another miracle is that Equine Dreams is staffed with highly qualified individuals that want to help people, especially people with special needs. I will definitely volunteer there for a long long time.

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

the process of helping in many areas, such as sidewalking, leading, and watching the miracles happen every day.

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

Bring more volunteers into the program.
