What brings you joy? Hands down- for me, it is Centaur Stride! I have reflected on my most joyful moments in my life, and most of them were while I was helping a rider at Centaur Stride, who either did something for a first time when all odds were against them, or they just let out the most memorable belly laugh that made you forget everything else! Not to mention the therapeutic benefits! Hips are being stretched for better ability to stand and walk. Backs are getting stronger for better breath control and better use of arms and head control. The pelvic movement facilitated by the horse is improving circulation and moving food through the digestive system. The positive social and emotional experiences brighten the day for everyone involved. Not once in 30 years, have I ever witnessed such happiness and smiles in the clinics. It’s addictive, but also exhausting. We always have to do fundraisers because it is so costly to keep and care for the horses! If you haven’t seen the miracles that occurs at Centaur Stride, please visit and experience the joy of “Healing with Horses”! Please give whatever you can spare! We hope you’ll share this post in addition to giving a donation. Maybe your friends will also see the value is such an amazing place that is worthy of being preserved and strengthened. This online site is very secure. Centaur Stride has no paid administrative staff- all volunteers! The money raised goes directly to program expenses. We have some great plans and the possibilities of expanding programs is limited only by funding. I dream of what could be accomplished if we all worked together! I am always amazed of what all my friends helped me to accomplish even with very little, and continue to do whatever it takes. Many hands made light work, and many minds can imagine and build what seems impossible! Please keep the light burning for Centaur Stride- shining since 1993! www.centaurstride.org.
