Review for Rose of Sharon Equestrian School Inc, Glen Arm, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I heard about Rose of Sharon during an MS meeting when our guest speaker, Joan Twining, spoke of the therapeutic benefits of horseback riding for people with disabilities. I had to try it! I was not disappointed. Joan really knows what she is doing! I learned to groom, ride, and love horses. She utilized the horses in a therapeutic way to help me deal with my MS. The therapy I received was not only beneficial in strengthening the weaknesses in my legs, but also in giving me a feeling of pride in knowing that I could handle and ride horses, despite my disease. I have been a horse lover ever since and a believer in their therapeutic value.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many therapeutic ways.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find more donors to keep it running.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

receiving therapy using horses.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...


If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand this organization throughout the country.

Ways to make it better...

I could have gone more often.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of money, keeping the horses healthy, and the weather

One thing I'd also say is that...

learning to ride horses is something nearly anyone, old or young, with or without disabilities, can and should do.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
