Monday through Friday year round, clients run, walk, and roll their way through the doors at the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center in Augusta, Michigan eager to meet up with ‘their’ horse and go for a ride. These individuals range in age from 2 to 92 and all face physical, emotional, or cognitive challenges in their daily lives. In 2015, Cheff Center served over 350 clients with the support of approximately 170 volunteers/week.
Cheff is utilizing this amazing opportunity to raise awareness for programing as well as funding for a much needed client lift. The proposed lift will assist in transferring our less mobile clients from platform to horse safely and seamlessly. This addition will not only greatly increase the safety of the mounting process but contribute to the sustainability and longevity of our equine and human staff. As an added bonus, this lift system will enable Cheff to expand services to include a population of clients without transferring capabilities!
