STORY SPOTLIGHT: Caroline's Story
Before coming to HORSEPOWER, I suffered from extreme social anxiety and depression. I decided to try HORSEPOWER a year ago and I loved it! My 3rd lesson I fell off the horse while dismounting and broke my ankle and had to have surgery. The only time I got really upset was when the doctor told me I couldn't ride for a while. But 8 week post surgery I was back on the horse, Brody! I am so glad and thankful HORSEPOWER is in my life. HORSEPOWER has literally changed my life. I went from laying in bed 24/7 to learning how to barrel race. I would like to thank everyone at HORSEPOWER and especially thank Miss Penny for being my instructor and having a special bond with me!
Rachel has a very special bond with her horse leader, Nancy Young. The two of
them have lots of little
conversations and as a mom,
it is wonderful to see a
person take such positive
interest in my child. Nancy
really takes special care to
make Rachel feel special.
All the new volunteers look
to the experienced volunteers for guidance in working with the kids, and it is very much appreciated as a parent to see how much all the volunteers truly love their work at HORSEPOWER.
Rachel has mastered a sitting trot and is excelling at a posting trot. She is doing very well with independently steering her horse and spend the majority of some lessons off lead. She currently rides Brandy. ~Scott & Karen Johnson, Parents of Rachel
Macie is 5 1/2 and a perinatal stroke survivor. She has just completed her first
session at HORSEPOWER,
and I can see improvements in
her balance, trunk strength
and control, and confidence.

I would like to thank the wonderful staff and volunteers for the MANY long, tiring and sometimes thankless hours that they put in each and every day at HORSEPOWER.
This allows us, as clients, to have a
facility that gives us a chance not to
give up. I was at the point (toxic chemical
exposure results) that I was ready to
give up. But...each of you knew so much
more! I am so thankful that I was
offered such an opportunity and facility
to help begin a recovery. I may never be
100%, but you have given me a purpose to go on and a reason to believe.
