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

Rating: 5 stars  

Working as a volunteer at the North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center these past few years, I have witnessed so many special moments. I love seeing the joy on the riders' faces as they greet their equine friends or when they manage to successfully master a task they have been working on for a while.
I love seeing the students interact with each other and with their instructors, sidewalkers and leaders and seeing their pleasure as they feed a treat brought from home to their horse at the end of their ride. I love seeing how a hyperactive child calms down as soon as he sits in the saddle. Most of all I love seeing the relationship between the horse and rider, both giving to each other. It is clear to me that families enjoy every minute they spend on the beautiful farm. NCTRC is a very special place, run by incredibly kind, experienced and energetic people. It costs money to feed and care for a healthy herd but it is money so well spent.
