As a part of the Founder’s Day of Caring, ABC9 headed out to S.T.A.R.S, or Special Trainers Adaptive Riding School, to lend a helping hand.
S.T.A.R.S provides positive healing through human-animal connection. They also have a dog therapy program, and are always looking for dogs to train and add to their ranks.
Volunteers from ABC9 landscaped, painted, scooped the arena, and brushed and bonded with the horses at the facility.
ABC9 anchor Time Seaman was among the volunteers, and was surprised with the task of cleaning up after the horses in the indoor arena, a task he had some fun with.
“It’s kind of like shooting free throws in the NBA Finals…it’s just shoot and miss”, said Tim.
After picking up after the horses, Tim hosed down the arena so all the horses could come in get some shade and enjoy a nice and clean environment.
