Rachel with Mercedes

“We had a Dr. appointment today and Rachel told him one of her favorite things to do is to ride horses. He told her to keep it up! He said next to people who run, people who ride horses have some of the highest lung functions and health!!! Going to figure out a way to get this girl riding more often, and through the winter.” -Tiffany Leaders

This was a message we received from a mother who’s 8 year old daughter takes riding lessons with us and has Cystic Fibrosis.

“Last Spring, every Saturday I went to Victory Riding Academy and cleaned pens with my mom.  Every day I was sweating; I didn’t want to do it, but I felt really good about myself when we were done!  The pens looked so good afterwards!” -Cooper age 7

-Cooper is one of our youngest volunteers who comes with his Mom.
