Adventures of a Saturday LTA


Share Adventures of a Saturday LTA

Our adventure starts bright and early at 7:30am. The first thing we do is head down to the barn to help get all the horses out, exercised, and ready for their lessons. Lessons start at 9am and for the LTAs (Lesson Treatment Assistant) on the therapy side (Caitlin and Madison) that means we start ground driving. Ground driving is when we walk behind the horse using long lines (reins) to control them. This "drives" the horse from behind which creates better movement for the rider. We are so lucky to be able to interact and build relationships with our riders. Every week we get to see them reaching and exceeding their goals! While we are helping them, they in turn are helping us. To see our riders grow in strength and confidence each week inspires us to continue working hard to make sure their needs are met. While we are in lessons, another LTA (Caitlyn) is the point person down at the barn. She answers any questions our volunteers have, makes sure all the tack is pulled and ready for the next hourís lessons, makes sure all the horses are out of their stalls and getting ready, and also answers radio calls from other staff members who need assistance. It's all on her! Although we are exhausted at day's end (we have all walked about 10 miles at this point) we leave with smiles on our faces remembering the thank youís from our riders and the kind words of our volunteers. We love our job so much! Thank you for any and every donation you make to the Shea Centerís Drive to Ride!
