A salute to WindWalkers

Dear Editor:

On behalf of The Buddy Program, I would like to extend a special thank you to Molly Robison and the amazing staff at WindWalkers, Equine Assisted Learning and Therapy Center, for an extraordinary afternoon at the beautiful Cedar Ridge Ranch in Carbondale.

Four Big and Little Buddy pairs were presented with an opportunity to understand horse safety, grooming and care, all the while providing an extremely fun recreational experience that included various games and activities, which helped increase the Buddy pairs’ horsemanship skills.

Again, thank you to WindWalkers for making our community a better place by making a difference in the lives of the people they serve. We salute them and look forward to collaborating with them in the future!

The Buddy Program offers plenty of opportunities to mentor in our community and local schools. We invite anybody interested in becoming a volunteer mentor to call 920-2130 or visit our website, http://www.buddyprogram.org.
