I started Saddle Up 10 years ago due to a passion for horses and teaching. I am a homeschool mom of 4 beautiful daughters and have been teaching for over 12 years. I love teaching and combine that love with the love of horses just seemed natural to me. Saddle Up began on a small farm in Seminole and quickly out grew our space. The organization became a 501 c3 and moved to Pinellas Park.
I never knew how theses gracious animals responded until watching our first horse Flip relate to a child in a wheelchair. Everyone has an "Ah Ha" moment when it comes to horses and therapy and mine was watching my horse lay his head on the tray of a quadriplegic so she could pet his head with her chin.
We give HOPE where sometimes there is no hope and I thank God everyday for using me as his vessel for Saddle Up,
If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether it's leading horses for therapy, cleaning up the barn, or collecting donations, we need you.
