Much to My Surprise, I Have Fallen in Love …

To be honest, I was a bit unsure about volunteering at Project R.I.D.E. I have never worked with children with disabilities before and I had no idea what to expect. Much to my surprise,

My daughter and I have been volunteering for the past couple of months and are thoroughly enjoying it. The staff and instructors are organized,... helpful, and approachable in every way. Working with the children and horses is so fulfilling. The program runs like a well-oiled machine...a tribute to their management team and established years of service to our community. Thank you for this wonderful experience ! We are addicted!read more

This non-profit quietly trots along helping disabled and their families to be joyful and enabled from disabled. So touching to see the employees and... volunteers help from a wheelchair to on top of a horse for therapeutic riding. We volunteered at their Crab Feed this year and that was fun and impressive; dozens of volunteers, Project RIDE's Board of Directors, Employees and everyone pitching in to make sure the 100's that attended had a great time and were appreciated for their donations to keep the organization going. Ride on!read more

We searched for the facility for 10 minutes, no signs indicating location. The generous lady we spoke with on the phone along with the flyer says... orientation starts at 4:30. We entered the barn/ arena at 4:20, with our experience as equestrians we stood quietly at the sign in table in order to not disturb the actions. Nobody in sight other than the lessons that were taking place... there were multiple people waiting with us. We stood there for 8 minutes until someone finally appeared, she proceeded to tell us we needed to leave as we were late and doors closed at 4:15. Don’t waste your time on this place! If you do consider this place, they prefer no horse experience so they can teach you the “right” way.read more
