Review for Ride On St. Louis, Inc., Kimmswick, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a volunteer, I see first hand the wonderful services this organization provides. Ride On St Louis (ROSL) was founded in 1998 by Marita Wassman. She's been the Director ever since. She provides a vast amount of experience and knowledge along with dedication and compassion for the humans and the horses. ROSL is one of the few Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) programs to receive the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) certification. This treatment program is and has been improving the quality of life for children and adults. I can't say enough about how impressed I've been with the professional staff of a Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapists and Instructors that prepare the treatment programs for each and every rider. They are all so dedicated. Many times they are 'hands on' with the riders during the sessions; conducting several sessions throughout the day. Safety for the riders and proper care and handling of the horses are of utmost importance. Therefore, all volunteers are required to go through rigorous training sessions in order to qualify for a position. The real reward for me is to see the happiness that each accomplishment brings to the rider and their parents. ROSL is changing lives!
