My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Victory Reins Therapeutic Riding Center, Peotone, IL, USA
I have been volunteering at Victory Reins for about 7 or 8 years. I have always love animals, especially horses. I also have a passion for helping people with special needs, so this place is right up my alley! I checked out helping with lessons and was hooked. I love the supportive, family atmosphere that is encouraged among both riders and volunteers. Wanting to learn more, I began helping with feeding and other barn chores, guided by the owner and more experienced volunteers. Going out to the barn on Sunday mornings has become my sanctuary. Spending time with the horses and other animals is very therapeutic for me as well. I have loved seeing the program growing over the years, seeing new and familiar faces every year. I hope to continue to be able to continue volunteering as long as I possibly can.
