Review for Sarasota Manatee Association For Riding Therapy Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter was a client at SMART for several years. She as always loved animals, but was especially interested in horses. When she first started, she was quiet, had a speech impairment and low muscle tone. Through this program, working with amazing horses and volunteers, she worked on her speech, balance, increased muscle tone and gained confidence that carried over into everyday life. She had traditional therapy and hated it. This program allowed her to participate and compete in Special Olympics and enjoy something that was truly unique with out being singled out as 'different'. For her, it was fun. As a mom, it gave me a chance to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine while talking to other parents in similar situations, watch my daughter do something she loved. I treasure the memories we have of the time spent at SMART....

Review for Sarasota Manatee Association For Riding Therapy Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter has been riding for eight years at SMART...its her favorite day of the week...even has she heads into her late teens, she still looks forward to each session. I have seen my daughter grow from a shy, timid little girl with limited vocal ability, to a beautiful, confident, young woman. the volunteers are kind and really love being with the clients they serve. The horses are fantastic. Seeing the connection between horse and rider is a beautiful and miraculous thing. I cant thank all those enough for taking my child on this journey...
