Whitewater Therapeutic Riding thrives thanks to its volunteers!

  • “I get as much out of it as the riders.”
  • “One of the best times of my life”.
  • “His smile, when the horse walked on, made my day”.
  • “Seeing an 84 year old woman touch the horse’s nose and remember her own horse was one the most touching moments of my life”.
