Review for North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc., Mebane, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I happened upon NCTRC by chance, and attended one of their fund raising events on a beautiful summer evening in August. As we arrived on the farm and joined the activity, a sense of peace and care washed over us. Their were families perusing around the farm, kids eating ice cream and playing with each other, and smiles on every single face. They had arranged a demonstration with riders from their programming, to show visitors what can be achieved on a horse. I was blown away! Why did it take me so long to find this place? I asked to speak to someone about volunteering and Ive never left.

I have been involved with horses my entire life through riding, training, farm management and veterinary assistance care. I was so pleased with the condition of the horses, the expertise of the instructors and the dedication of the volunteers. Mostly I was astonished to see the effect that the horses had on their riders. Riding has always been therapeutic for me, but I had no idea what level of relief it could provide to those who truly needed it. You can see the pride, accomplishment and joy in the eyes of every rider, every day.

I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to be part of the experience for the riders at NCTRC. I plan on spending the rest of my life involved with this organization in any way possible. It is truly the best investment of my love and time that I could ever make!
