Any therapeutic riding school experiences?
I would like to volunteer to help out at t therapeutic riding school in November, and I was just wondering about your experiences volunteering or working there. I may have to give up riding for the time that I am working there, but I think it will be worth it. Have you worked at one? Was the experience a good one? LQ: How does mowed grass cause colic? (Serious question)
