Next Tuesday, October 4th we will be going to help out with the Saratoga Therapeutic Equestrian Program (STEP).
For those who may not know, STEP is a program for children and adults with disabilities that uses horseback riding for therapeutic purposes. Our chapter has a long history with STEP, and in the past few semesters we have helped them out with things like receiving hay deliveries, using our engineering skills to help them move a horse-cart thingy to the loft of their barn, and other fun barn chores. And of course, we get to play with horses when we are done!
Next Tuesday we will be helping out with moving a round pen and hay and depending on time helping them with other chores, and anyone who has been there before can tell you the people at STEP are extremely nice and the events have always been a lot of fun!
If you would like to go, we will be meeting at the office at 3pm and leaving no later than 3:15pm. We will be at the barn from 4pm to 6pm, and should be back on campus before 7pm.
