EVENT DATE: May 14, 2016
Exceptional Equestrians of Missouri Valley is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) Certified center who provides their clients with therapeutic riding lessons. They also work with other organizations (Washington University and Therapy Lifetime Consultants) to provide more specialized therapy to those in need. Exceptional Equestrians is a not-for-profit organization that is volunteer-based and mainly funded by donations. Their lesson prices are drastically reduced in order to provide more affordable therapy to those in need. Exceptional Equestrians of Missouri Valley is the reason I now am pursuing my PATH Certification to become a therapeutic riding instructor. I have come to realize that becoming a therapeutic riding instructor is the perfect combination of all my favorite things, helping those with disabilities and animals, especially horses. Anyone who knows me will know I have always had a passion for helping and teaching others, and I also have a passion for animals. I thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life but after finding EE I knew I was wrong. I am truly grateful to Exceptional Equestrians for helping me find myself and always being there to help me throughout the process of becoming an instructor. For these reasons, I am raising money and awareness to benefit those who need Exceptional Equestrians to help better themselves. Also if you want to donate but do not feel comfortable donating online feel free to talk to me and we can work it out!
