Letter: One great program almost vanished

One great program almost vanished

I am writing a letter to the editor because a great program was almost shut down. This program is the National Sports Center for Disabled horseback riding program. This program is not only beneficial to people with disabilities but also to able bodied people.

Nicole Robinson is the supervisor for the program she organizes everything but volunteers. Nicole doesn’t do everything her two coworkers Rebecka Johnson and Allie Johnson are both instructors and teach the lessons. One option for able bodied and disabled people is rodeo club an activity for ages five and up. This will be held in June and July. This program is crucial to some peoples life. A Quadriplegic can walk after he rides horses this has not happened with any other treatment but riding horses. The movement of the horses’ legs moves your hips it a direction nothing else does. This loosens the hips which in turn can help him walk. The program has five lessons a day and in the late season have volunteer rides. Volunteers can’t be under the age of 14. This program is great for both people with disabilities and non-disabled people if you would like to contact the NSCD volunteer office use this number you can volunteer or schedule a lesson by calling (970) 726-1546 or email volunteer@nscd.org.
