Help Keep the Barn Doors Open



We were introduced to Ready Set Ride back in 2008 as a different form of therapy for our son Jimmy. Jimmy does not walk or crawl on his own and had very low muscle tone. When Jimmy first started riding he would sit slouched over on the horse (pictured above)and just 8 weeks later he was sitting upright on the horse. The results were amazing we were convinced then that as special needs parents, we would do whatever it took to ensure that Jimmy was able to continue this form of therapy.
We ride every Sunday morning April thru October and we never miss a day.
When the economy started to decline a few years ago the costs for hay and the care of the horses started to sky rocket. The owner started to struggle to come up with the money to keep the doors open and when she shared this with us the realization that we could lose this form of therapy for our son. We decided at that point we would do what we could to try and help raise awareness and funds for the barn.
Ready Set Ride is a non-profit organization who operates solely by the donations of family and supporters and as is run by volunteers. All monies raised goes toward helping cover the costs of operating the barn and the upkeep of the horses.
Please visit www.readysetride.org for more information regarding the facility or www.all4jimmy.com for more information about our son Jimmy.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your donation
