SIRE Therapeutic Horsemanship

SIRE Therapeutic Horsemanship

I started volunteering at SIRE Therapeutic Horsemanship in Spring, TX on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I assist our clients in a variety of ways, both inside and outside the riding arena. In the arena, as a volunteer I am a side-walker who (provides physical and verbal support) and horse leaders (assuring safe horse handling during class). Outside the arena I help with event planning, client outreach, and barn cleaning. It is so inspiring to see the client get out of a wheelchair and up on a horse, a huge smile on their face is priceless.
