Stephanie Tutschulte, Executive Director of the Sunshine Ranch Therapeutic Riding
Their motto is: Together We Shine Brighter”. This is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 in Lakeside. Stephanie and 10 volunteers provide therapeutic riding & horsemanship lessons for children & adults with special needs, the minimum age being 3 years old. The 5 horses were chosen based on personality, disposition, and love of people.
They serve 8-12 students a week. Riding improves physical, cognitive, and social abilities.
It costs $9000 per year to support each horse for basic board & health care. Every dollar goes into the operation of the program.
For information call 619-204-2637. Their email address is Sunshineranchriding@gmail.com and for volunteer opportunities or a new student form go to their website at SunshineRanchRiding.org
