I started the program in 2013 after Willy Ross, a day program for developmentally disabled, autistic, and deaf adults, closed their doors. I had been working with them as the head of their equestrian program for almost twenty years. When they closed, we had orphaned horses on our hands. I offered to take the horses and equipment off their hands, and we started the Let’s Ride program from there.
It’s been a few years since we’ve had a new horse in our barn. A few months ago, one of our long-time supporters let us know she’d acquired a few new horses that may be perfect for our program once we were ready to expand.
