Volunteer Testimonials


"I could write VOLUMES about all the wonderful things that Equi-Ed is. In short though, the Directors and instructors ROCK. Their attention to safety, details, education, fun, and happiness is above and beyond. Never have I met such a selfless group. It is life changing watching the students grow in strength and self-esteem while learning, exercising and having fun. They are the true meaning of champions!"



"I have been a volunteer at Equi-Ed since 2008. A friend introduced me to the program and I absolutely love it. I mostly help with the feeding of the horses but have also been involved in lessons. To witness the incredible benefits to the riders is amazing to say the least. I feel very privileged to be a small part in this amazing program. The instructors and managers are truly special, they never waver in their commitment and love for what they do. The team of students, instructors and horses makes for a program that benefits all involved. As a volunteer I get so much more out of it than I could ever give back."
