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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have know Joan my many years now and will always admire her amazing determination to make ROSES the vision she always imagined it would be. Through the hurdles that a nonprofit can go through, she focuses on the people she has touched in so many ways and the horses that are part of her soul. In the 9 years I have been involved it has grown into an even more amazing place with the gorgeous new arena. I never thought that day I walked into the barn to just volunteer once a week with one little boy, that Joan, the horses and all of the people I have met along the way have changed my life. At a time where I needed so much, this place gave me more than I ever imagined! The open arms of ROSES is always a place I know I can go to feel peace and appreciation.

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

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am in my third year of being employed with ROSES and I am so thankful that I found this organization. It has given me a new appreciation to families that face the challenges of having a child with special needs. Having a place like ROSES for their children to be a part of is so important. They are able to care for and ride horses in a safe place and learn skills they can not learn in a classroom. Being a part of the daily care of the horses, teaching the students and everything in between gives me such a feeling of accomplishment that I am proud to help ROSES continue to strive for the goals such as finishing the construction of the indoor arena so that more children can benefit from such an awesome experience!

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

the role of volunteer, board member, donor, aprentice instructor, and finally certified instructor taking on some students of my own.

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

seeing the difference it makes in the children.

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

dedicated, different, but determined to come together to make a difference for others.

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

provide a unique therapeutic environment able to serve many more children and adults with disabilities than are currently being served now.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
