Therapeutic Riding, Inc.
“Imagine being the parent of a child with autism who has never spoken, to you or anyone else, and hearing your child speak to their horse for the first time. Imagine being the teenager who is told she does not have to have hip surgery because riding has made such a positive impact on her joints. Imagine being the 20-something young man with cerebral palsy who gets to hang out with his friends on Thursday nights, joking and acting goofy – wheelchairs, speech impairments, and tight muscles temporarily forgotten. We can train the horses, obtain the volunteers, and teach the lessons. Your financial support made these experiences possible.
Art Van’s generous donation adopted Sigbjorn for the year 2010, and you can be assured that you are directly touching our rider’s lives each and every day through your gift. What joy; not only on the faces of the riders but also for the parents who want only the best for their children, and for the TRI staff and the over 150 volunteers who donate their time to this amazing program. Thank you, thank you.”
