“This year was my first experience volunteering with the Faithful Hearts team. Although I was nervous, they made sure to make everyone feel comfortable and ready to help, no matter what experience level you were. I always felt comfortable asking questions even though I was a leader. I can definitely say that every type of student is welcome, no matter what challenges they have yet to overcome, making sure each child is supported and taken care of. And in the arena, they are captivating, motivational, and fun. Without ever disregarding the safety of the kids and horses. This was overall a truly fantastic experience."
