Share Savvy Shea
An overwhelming joy is sure to satisfy every soul that ever enters the gates into the Shea Therapeutic Riding Center. From the trusty steeds to the riders laughing with their out-bursting joy to the enthusiastic volunteers to the parents of our riders cheering ringside to those making the cookie and carrot offerings to the operators managing down at the barn or up in the office to the diligent equine trainers and to the encouraging therapists all along the way--many hands are essential components in making The Jf Shea Center fulfill its goals and mission. The Shea Center works to heal both children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities through a god-touched means of therapeutic horseback riding. The benefits of equine therapy are almost endless. Not only can clients gain from opportunities like building muscle strength, enhancing language and social skills, boosting courage, and overcoming obstacles, but they also have the assistance of gentle giants that bring tranquility and amusement in the process of their growth. The hundreds of hours I have spent at Shea consisting of grooming horses, sweeping tack rooms, supporting riders from the side of their mount, organizing supplies buckets, leading ponies and much more all in the positive environment of both human and furry friends has given me a joyful feeling like no other ever felt in giving to others. I am very lucky to be a part of the efforts of philanthropy at The Shea Center, and I would like to invite you to join in on this rewarding experience by giving to my team. This is a most worthwhile service and all our help is so very needed. I encourage you to join in any way you can to support this valuable cause. Any and all proceeds will go directly towards financial aid for riders and proper care for the beloved horses. May we both continue to be blessed with a heart willing to give to and for those in need. I thank you for helping me and these riders make tomorrow a brighter day.
