What do you like best about teaching therapeutic riding and what does it mean to you? My favorite thing about teaching lessons is seeing the pride students have in themselves when they accomplish a skill they have been working on. I love watching my students grow in confidence both on and off the horse. I have the privilege to be a part of my students riding journey as they grow in their riding skills and gain an invaluable connection with their horse.
