Hi I'm Patty.!
I've not been without a horse since I could walk, which was how old i was when my parents bought a pony for my brother. My Appaloosa even went to college with me in West Palm Beach, FL!
I found therapeutic riding one day in an e-mail from MiddleTN Autism Soc. I thought it might be something my son could enjoy. He said NO but I began volunteering 10 or so years ago. I certified as a riding instructor thru PATHIntl in 2012 as a riding instructor.
The excitement and joy of the students keeps me coming back, not to mention all the awesome moments when a child or adult achieves a goal we have been working towards.
