Changing lives

A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS FIND INDEPENDENCE WITH HORSES

History

 

SARI was founded in 1978 in memory of a little girl who loved animals. Sari Greenberg was born with Down Syndrome at a time when children with disabilities were often put in care. Instead, Syd and Jeanne embraced the opportunity to bring her home to the farm where SARI currently stands.

The vision and compassion of two parents put therapeutic riding on the map. It is now a valuable activity that has changed the lives of many others. The dedication of staff and volunteers makes SARI one of Southwestern Ontario’s most well respected therapeutic riding organizations.

Testimonials

Norman

You have done so much for Normie and being able to ride Marshmallow every week has made him a very happy young man. You are all amazing and I thank you."

Trinity

Trinity cannot wait for her weekly riding lesson on Vixen and seeing her instructor whom she adores. In return Trinity is encouraged, challenged and supported to be at her best weekly. Thank you SARI!."

Connor

When Connor first started it was difficult for him to successfully complete a lesson without behavioural challenges... but once working with the instructors I started to see a real change in him; decreased anxiety levels that would continue for a couple of days after each lesson, the ability to better follow instructions, increased ability to communicate, improved strength and self-confidence, and as well, learning to think about other's feelings which included the horses. If you were to ask Connor how it feels to come to riding... he would tell you "it feels just like home"."

Tammy

Riding at SARI has been very physically rewarding for Tammy; she has seen great improvements in her balance and strength. Meeting a lot of new people has been a joy for her, as well Tammy just loves the horses (who are so good to her!). She has looked forward to going to SARI every week for the past 30 years, and will continue for many years to come!"
