So, they wanted to give something to the families for their children to do something special while still working on learning goals and therapy goals. Many parents were interested, and the program blossomed. The parents loved the idea, and the children loved spending theme with the horses. Beaver Local students have been to get involved with Rising Hope as volunteers and participants.
