Allie Perez, Research#2, Therapeutic Riding

For the second research project I chose the alternative option, helping community. I volunteered at a local horse farm and helped with their therapeutic riding program. This program works with mentally disabled youth and adults in the local community. As a volunteer, I worked with both children and the horses to help insure that everything was done correctly and safely. research 2

    Very cool– I know a couple people who have worked with therapeutic horse riding sites in the past. Interesting connection here being made between the course and the horses!

    Two of my roommates have volunteered with this program as well so I was naturally drawn to reading this. I think the program sounds great, as it empowers people with disabilities and gives them an opportunity to ride horses as they may not get the chance to otherwise. I enjoyed reading how you relate it to power with the community.
