My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Dream Catcher Stables Inc, Spring, TX, USA
I became a volunteer at Dream Catcher Stables over 10 years ago, helping to care for the horses and became the chief tractor operator. My wife and granddaughter had volunteered and they convinced me to join them for the day. I have been actively involved in all aspects of the organization ever since. I find nothing more rewarding than to see the smiles on the athletes faces when they have participated in one of the competitions we attend.
My first encounter with one of our athletes with downs was to see this small person running across the parking lot just as fast as her little legs would carry her. She threw herself at me and gave me the best welcoming hug and big smile I could have possibly hoped for. We have been good buddies ever since.
Since our involvement with Dream Catchers, we have been joined by another granddaughter, her dad and our youngest granddaughter, who is not only a volunteer, but an athlete as well. Being a volunteer/athlete has boosted her self-esteem and confidence and helped her to become more focused.
It always warms my heart and is so rewarding to see how much the athletes enjoy their time at the stables.
