MANE, Montgomery Area Nontraditional Equestrians, is therapeutic riding for people with physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities from children to wounded warriors. Bonding with the horse and participating in equine related activities opens up new worlds for people who have challenges. Animals have a way of endearing riders. They’re nonjudgmental, even loving. The horse is the link between a disability and feeling whole.
“Poarch made a significant contribution to MANE’s therapeutic riding programs in helping us with the Poarch Creek Arena, which we named out of gratitude for them. The riders and volunteers, the staff, and even the horses have benefitted from their kindness and generosity. Every time someone makes a difference in our community, it makes the community stronger.”
