Review for REINS Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, Fallbrook, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Let me explain what this picture is saying. I'll leave it to your heart to help with the true impact. Gemma is a young lady that has a disability called SMA, spinal muscular atrophy. When she is at the ranch she is confined to her stroller on steroids as I call it. Her horse is Daisy, a 21 year old POA. This was during our Christmas Party Pony Parade. Families drive around the ranch and stop to say hi to their horses. Emma's nurse is holding her little hand out and Daisy is making a beeline for her hand. She is not being lead. This is one of the strongest relationships between horse and rider at the ranch. This is why I volunteer. Or when Vincent, who can't walk, stood up in the stirrups for the first time a couple of weeks ago. You can not imagine how excited he was. This is why I volunteer.
We have around fifty staff, 900 volunteers, and twenty horses ready, willing and able to serve the 200 families we tend too. All committed to make sure stories like these never stop coming.
