Review for Sarasota Manatee Association For Riding Therapy Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA
Began volunteering in November of 2007 just one evening a week. Initially, for me, it was all about getting a 'horse fix', but oh my, SMART quickly became so much more for me.
Each rider is special and the other volunteers are special as well. Other volunteers also seem to want to go that extra mile making it easy to work with others who have the same commitment this ever growing program. We all learn something every time we volunteer be it about a rider, the horses or even ourselves.
From the beginning I was thanked for my service each time I volunteered. Quickly I learned that SMART values it's volunteers, tries not to take them for granted by thanking them on a very regular basis. Being valued and being sincerely appreciated is important to us as humans.
