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

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

I have been volunteering at SMART for almost 20 years. I've been a side-walker, a horse leader, and a "spotter" for adult programs, for children's programs and for their carriage driving program. When I was unable to help physically because of a hip-replacement, I worked in their office. I can't imagine a more satisfying place to volunteer. The instructors and my fellow volunteers are so knowledgeable and dedicated. The horses, chosen very carefully, seem to know how important their job is. And the clients put a smile on my face every week. I love to see the improvements -- physical, mental and emotional -- from week to week. SMART makes me feel very valued, but I am more than grateful to them for allowing me to participate in the wonderful work they do.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at SMART for more than 10 years. Watching the growth and change in the clients, both children and adults, makes being there much more than just worthwhile. The volunteer training is excellent, the instructors are highly qualified, and, of course, the carefully selected and well-trained horses are truly amazing. SMART also goes out if its way to make the volunteers feel valued and appreciated. SMART is a truly wonderful organization.
