Thank you for visiting Loving Thunder Therapeutic Riding, Inc's web site. Loving Thunder is a 501 (c) 3 IRS authorized Non-Profit Corporation. Our organization depends on your participation either by contribution or by volunteering to help. We hope you find the information needed to assist you in deciding to volunteer, make a donation, or participate as a rider in the program.
You may or may not have any experience with horses or people with disabilities, but it will not be long before you see the joys of helping others help themselves. The participants in our program will not have the ability to experience the joys of horses and learning to ride without your generous support and the dedicated volunteers. In the process of learning to ride, these individuals are learning new skills that will help them in all aspects of their life. They will be increasing mobility, acquiring motor skills, gaining independence, and self confidence which they will apply to everyday tasks that you and I take for granted.
My own experiences of having an adult daughter with autism and a love for horses brought me to organizing Loving Thunder. My own daughter has been riding for approximately 8 years and she has seen so many benefits from horses that I can’t even name them all. The joy she has on her face when she gets on the horse would make anyone’s heart melt. And best of all, she is gaining skills that have been relatively impossible for her, while she is doing something she loves. Wow, could it be any better, learning everyday skills and loving every minute of it. My goal is to help other parents see those great strides in their own loved ones.
We have seen some very miraculous moments at Loving Thunder such as speaking first words, riding independently, bonding with the horses, lots and lots of smiles, and un-ending pride from the riders.
As a supporter or volunteer, you will be making a difference in many lives. We are all blessed with special talents, please bring yours and share them so you can see the miracles happening with your own eyes.
Thank you for your dedication to helping others.
