Volunteering with Horses with Hearts is an extraordinary experience. It has allowed me to walk the last ride of a 7-year-old girl before her untimely death; watch a veteran who lost his tongue in Afghanistan powerfully ride the horse he loves; talk with an 11-year-old about being blind in her one eye, and hearing a highly autistic girl, who has created her own language speak a complete sentence in English!!!!!
The children and adults in the Horses with Hearts Equine Assisted Riding Program are unique and superior at the same time. Each has this one activity without assistance from a family member. They mount, ride, play educational games, and dismount a horse! What an extraordinary experience for all! JB Pike, volunteer
