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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center for a couple of years now and it has been one of the most fulfilling decisions that I've made in a long time! The impact, not just on the riders and their families was no surprise to me.....but the impact it made on my life was something that I didn't expect. Working with EMS and emergency medicine for the past 11 years, I've seen many critical situations and have felt frustrated and helpless too many times to count in my career. Volunteering with NCTRC is such a positive, worthwhile experience that it serves as a form of therapy for me, as well as the beautiful children I work with!! In the medical field, we refer to a medication that has a desired effect on a disease that it wasn't initially designed for as an "off-label" medication. This is how I feel when volunteering with this wonderful organization....it not only benefits the children and adult riders tremendously, it is also my "off-label" therapy and wonder-drug after what may have been a sad and frustrating work week :)
Thank you NCTRC for all you do for the community!
