This program has changed my life in even more ways than I can realize myself. I started mainly because of my passion for horses, but it is way more than that now. The smile on your riders face when they know that they accomplished something is the reason I am there almost every day! I am so thankful that I came across this program, because I feel like it has done more for me than I can ever give back to our students.
"The kids enjoy coming here every day. We've seen improvement in following multi-step directions. Over the years we've seen students grow with their ability to work with the horses."

"She'd ride every day if she could. We've noticed big improvements physically with her ability to really strengthen her core. She has a lot of pride and ownership of the sport that she's in."
“My daughter Isabelle loves riding. It gives her a sense of freedom and responsibility that she has not been able to experience until now. She also enjoys the company of the therapists who make therapy feel like fun. The smile it brings to her face is priceless.”
-Jodi (Isabelle's Mother)
I am so grateful to coach Marlene and the amazing team of volunteers at Holistic Riding. Through your program, Meaghan is not only learning to ride but she has gained self-confidence, is building self-esteem and improving her social skills. But most of all she is having fun! Meaghan calls the barn her "happy place". She cannot wait to ride each week. Because I am able to volunteer in the program, I am able to share this experience with her!
