We are looking for a few cowboys and angels to give a little back to those who have a much harder trail to follow than our own. Join the Cowboys & Angels team as we Pony Up! for Saddle Up!
Just spend a little time around a good horse and you can begin to understand why bringing horses together with children who have mental or emotional disorders has had startling results. We need the strong hearts and kind souls of a few cowboys and angels to further the great work of Saddle Up! where "horsing around" really makes a difference.
In 2013 Saddle Up! served over 200 children and youth. They deal daily with more than 50 types of disabilities as defined by federal law including: Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay or Disability, Down Syndrome, Emotional, Behavioral, or Mental Health, Genetic Conditions/Disorders, Head Trauma/Brain Injury, Hearing Impairment, Learning Disability, Mental Retardation, Muscular Dystrophy, Orthopedic, Speech Impairment, Spina Bifida, Stroke, Terminal Illness, Visual Impairment, and many others.
As a board member, I have been astounded by the work of this organization called Saddle Up! Seeing firsthand how these programs improve the students and their families, I cannot give enough praise to the students, families, volunteers, and the support teams. Please check out the rest of the website to get a glimpse of our programs. www.saddleupnashville.org
