M.A.R.E. believes in educating the community about the use of horses in improving each rider’s quality of life.
I saw a child that couldn’t walk, sit on a horse, laugh and talk.
Then ride it through a field of daisies and yet he could not walk unaided.
I saw a child, no legs below, sit on a horse, and make it go
through woods of green and places he had never been to sit and stare except from a chair.
I saw a child who could only crawl, mount a horse and sit up tall.
Put it through degrees of paces and laugh at the wonder on our faces.
I saw a child born into strife, take up and hold the reins of life
and that same child was heard to say, ‘Thank God for showing me the way’. -John Anthony Davies
