Would you recommend GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center?

I first became a volunteer as a teenager in 2000-2002 and returned in 2014 as an assistant to the instructor and Volunteer Coordinator. It has been an amazing experience working with the horses and people with special needs and has made a significant impact on my life.
