Taylor is 6 years old and has been riding Eli at Centaur Stride for almost two years. He gets so excited when we tell him it's time to go ride his horse! Taylor helps with all of the steps to get his horse ready to ride, even if he does like to try to hurry through to get to his favorite part - riding! Taylor's favorite things to do are riding on the trails when the weather is nice and trotting. Riding has helped Taylor improve his balance, coordination, and strength in a way that is so much fun.
Abby is almost 8 years old and has been riding Beau at Centaur Stride since this past summer. She loves being able to have an activity that she can do with her little brother! Abby loves trotting and riding on the trails as well. She is learning about how to care for horses and ride independently. Abby is looking forward to becoming a volunteer at Centaur Stride once she gets older!
The staff at Centaur Stride are absolutely amazing! They are so kind and patient. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful facility so close to home to have an inclusive activity for both Abby and Taylor to do together. Both Abby and Taylor have learned so many skills while riding and caring for the horses that have carried over into their daily lives.
This year we will be walking to raise $3,500 for Centaur Stride to help care for Eli, Beau, and the other horses at Centaur Stride We would love it if you would like to sponsor us for the walkathon by donating to our fundraising page.
