We are the grandparents of Josiah Metz. We want to thank you for the unique and important service you are providing to so many special needs children like Josiah.
We can recall the many fears Josiah held on to not only about horses, but about new experiences and nature in general. He has come a long way over the three years he has been enrolled in your program.
We watched proudly as he carefully groomed Ruby (who patiently and happily allowed his attention) and then saddled and bridled her. Then he mounted and with confidence moved around the Arena directing Ruby to move carefully through the obstacle course.
Josiah was very proud of himself and showed it during the entire time we observed as his head was held high. Then afterward he talked about how much he has learned, the many accomplishments he made, and new skills he has gained.
We thank you for the inspired and valued program, patience and impact NEAT has made in Josiah’s life. It’s made a big difference for a lifetime. We hope NEAT continues to grow and receive wide community support.
We wish you the best ahead
