“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and freedom.” Sharon Ralls Lemon

This fall has been a season to celebrate!

We’ve had the honor of working with amazing families, extending our community network, and adding to our herd. We connected with businesses with a heart for philanthropy and the RISE mission, and held our first in-person fundraiser in three years.

“When riding a horse, we borrow freedom.”  Helen Thomson

This quote sums up what I see happen at RISE everyday. The pride and confidence that our riders experience when they arrive and see their horse waiting for them is priceless. Clients and their families fight battles to accomplish what most people take for granted, but when they ride their horse they gain a strength and rhythm that calms their mind and body.

“Horses change lives.  They give our young people confidence and self-esteem.  They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls, they give us hope.”  Toni Robinson

This quote is exactly what RISE Therapeutic Equestrian Center home of RISE Rehab is about. The power of the  horses, along with the amazing staff and volunteers at RISE make my job as the new  Executive Director so joyful.
Since I started as a volunteer and have a daughter who benefitted from services at RISE, I have seen the powerful impact to our clients and families that happen on the property everyday. It is a huge honor to be able to help RISE serve our clients and look to the future as we expand our impact to even more families.
