Know Someone Who Could Benefit from Therapeutic Horseback Riding?
Therapeutic Horseback Riding is incredibly healing and good for all ages. Do you have a loved one who would benefit from lessons at Great Results Equine Assisted Therapies in Greenwood, LA?
Not familiar with GREAT? Great Results Equine Assisted Therapies is a program of The Arc of Caddo-Bossier and offers therapeutic horseback riding services to children and adults with disabilities.
GREAT is truly one of the coolest things that I've ever been a part of. As a volunteer now for several years, I've witnessed the healing power of horses firsthand. I've watched students with traumatic brain injuries, Down Syndrome, autism, etc... get stronger, both emotionally and physically... and best of all, at least in my humble opinion, I've seen the pure joy it brings!
I could go on and on about the benefits of equine-assisted therapies, but it's almost something you have to see for yourself. I invite you to become a volunteer at Great. I also hope you'll get any loved ones that you think might benefit signed up for GREAT's fall session that starts the second week of September and will run for 12 weeks. Call 318-938-9166 to find out more.
GREAT's mission statement is to, 'Build unlimited opportunities for people with disabilities through therapeutic horsemanship.' The Arc of Caddo-Bossier has multiple programs, but as you can tell, GREAT is the one that really works on my heart. It takes a lot of money to run a facility like GREAT and I know they'd love your support in the form of time or money!
GREAT is located in Greenwood on Greenwood-Springridge Road. Call (318) 938-9166 if you're interested in volunteering.
