Review for Whispering Manes Therapeutic Riding Center, Miami, FL, USA
After much loss due to chronic illness/pain, Whispering Manes has offered the opportunity for my world to grow again in a a meaningful way. It is a therapeutic experience in so many ways, from the quiet sound of birds and smell of hay when I step out of my car, to the therapeutic interaction with horses, the physically rehabilitative aspect of riding, and the motivation to leave the house to learn about something I never would have previously dreamed of.
This has also offered me a positive way to share my illness with others in my life - when I held a crowdfunding fundraiser to pay for lessons, it offered the chance for others to positively support and share in my efforts towards improving well-being & quality of life.
I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to learn and volunteer with a non-profit whose staff is understanding of the challenges I face.
