Lenawee Therapeutic Riding Rides the Winds of Change by providing therapeutic horseback riding and a specifically designed program involving the use of horses and ponies to provide riding for physically and emotionally impaired individuals.

Lenawee Therapeutic Riding is a nonprofit organization that exists on contributions through fundraising activities, community service organizations, businesses and individual donations. Financial support is needed to pay for insurance, equipment, facility rental, scholarships, instructor's fees, public relations and continuing education courses.

How can you help?: New volunteers are essential for the continued success of the program and are needed for all aspects of the program. If you would like to become involved or need more information, contact Janelle Stewart, MSU Extension Educator - Youth Development. Your financial contributions are appreciated and are tax deductible if itemized. We welcome any visitors who would like to attend our in-session riding programs.

I saw a child...                     

I saw a child, no legs below,

sit on a horse and make it go through woods of green

and places he had never been to sit and stare,

except from a chair.

I saw of a child who could only crawl

mount a horse and sit up tall.

Put it through degrees of paces

and laugh at the wonder on our faces.

I saw a child born into strife,

take up and hold the reins of life,

and that same child was heard to say

"Thank God for showing me the way."
