ORGANIZATIONAL INFORMATION

The Best of Friends program (an all volunteer 501(c)3 organization) provides therapeutic riding for people with disabilities in the Cambria and Somerset Counties area.

ORGANIZATIONAL MAKE-UP

Best of Friends is made up of a Board of Directors who meet monthly, currently 1 instructor; approximately 100 students and more than 45 very dedicated volunteers who participate either on a weekly or as needed basis.

 Accomplishments

The Best of Friends program has through its 35 year history provided not only therapeutic riding which include physical and psychological benefits for its various students over the years, it has also provided a rewarding learning experience for its many volunteers.  Often times the volunteers in the program have not been exposed to various disabilities and their affects on people.  It provides a forum for non-challenged people to find out how special people with disabilities truly are and how they bravely deal with their various challenges on a daily basis.  Additionally there are numerous volunteers who have not had the opportunity to work with or be around horses.  The special training that these horses receive helps people to see how helpful these animals can be for people with disabilities.  It also seems to be therapeutic for the volunteers as well!!  Proudly this program helps to bring the best of people and the best of horses together to do a very rewarding service.
