    My daughter has been riding with this program for about 6 years. It is the best thing for her confidence, sportsmanship and her love of animals. This is one activity she will never give up because she loves it so much. Thank you Miss Darlene for the years of training and enjoyment for her.

    We are fortunate to see Ride Your Horse from two different vantage points. As parents of a student volunteer for RYH therapeutic Riding Program, we have seen the amazing results of this unique program. Darlene has a magic with her special-needs students and the horses too, that is a joy to experience.

    Over the last two years, we have attended a number of the shows and events where the group has performed, and the smiles and sense of accomplishment that we see in the faces of the students and volunteers alike, tell the story.

    Also, we have enrolled our daughter, who is 14 in RYH riding lessons this year, to enhance her lifelong love of horses and riding. She is learning the fundamentals of horsemanship and safe riding techniques, and enjoys every lesson with Darlene. The students and families learn a great deal from this gifted teacher, and are fortunate to be a part of this special organization.

    I have been working with Ride Your Horse now for over four years and it has been a very rewarding experience. Miss Darlene is a very competent young lady and a great horse woman. If you want to have a great experience volunteering with RYH do take advantage of Miss Darlene's offer for lessons. The more you know about horses and riding them the better volunteer you will become.

    "The Sky is the limit..." with RYH. RYH has many volunteers and an awesome director (Darlene Harmon) that ensure every rider is safe. Also, there is the wonderful experience that comes with riding a horse, the bond. Every adult or child, despite of their abilities will go home with the feeling that they made a new friend. The program doesn't just offer the bond between the horse and the individual. But the opportunity to meet new friends. The best part, the program isn't limited to children. Adults particiate as well. I highly recommend you and your child give it a try. Who know's, it may be something you can enjoy as a family.

    My Daughter started lessons in Aug 2010, she has benefited so much for her horseback riding lessons. Her posture and her leg strength for walking & climbing has improved. She is also starting to make new letter sounds. And to top it off she loves riding the horse, so it's not a therapy we have to fight with her to particiapte in. Ms Darlene & her staff of volunteers make it fun for her while she is getting a great workout.

    Our son, Brandon, absolutely loved his experience at Ride Your Horse Therapeutic Riding. We were very impressed with how the staff worked with our son, and were surprised to see how quickly he learned by this new experience. We can't say enough about the entire staff and experience there!

    Our daughter Christie has a significant improvement in her behavior and muscles tone strength (due to the Prader-Willie syndrome). Thank you very much for your continuous training lessons and support. Regards, Tracy & Dave.

    This is such a great program! It is safe and fun, and the progress everyone makes learning to ride is amazing! Everyone young and old learns to really ride, no matter what their conditions or abilities are. It heart warming to see some of these kids especially, do things they never thought they could do!

    I've been very fortunate to be volunteering in the program for over 1 1/2 yrs. and it's been so rewarding and awesome to see how much our clients have progressed and to see the look on their faces when they're riding the horses. Darlene is so amazing with working with the clients and they all love her.

    Darlene has done wonders for my kids and myself. She has great knowledge and I would highly recommend lessons from her and her program!!

    AMAZING program. My son benefited from this therapy far more than from his others (pt,OT, & speech) in that his confidence in himself grew. He feels like he can cinque the world!!! Thanks Darlene! You program changes lives! =}
