Eagles’ Wings Stable, Inc. provides equine-assisted therapeutic activities for people with special needs to benefit and improve their development and quality of life
Eagles’ Wings Stable, Inc. recognizes the importance of physical, mental and emotional well-being for each participant. Participants develop balance, strength, stability, social, emotional and cognitive skills that enrich their daily lives and their contribution to society
We value the multidimensional motion and personality of the horse as a therapist to make the movements and connections necessary to improve the participants’ well-being
OUR OPERATIONAL SUPPORT STAFF
We have two part-time coordinators, a Student Coordinator, and a Volunteer Coordinator who manage the operational support side of Eagles' Wings. These two talented and caring individuals: assess new students and manage existing students; match volunteers to riders and horses, and manage barn buddy assignments.
Gail Duer - Student Coordinator
Gail learned of Eagles' Wings while at a neurologist appointment with her daughter and grandson who was severely handicapped. She is a horse lover from childhood with some experience but had to get “back in the saddle” after 35 years. So, combining all of these interests and achievements, Eagles Wings was a perfect outlet and therapy for her. She began in 2007 as a horse leader and was certified as an instructor in 2011 through Fieldstone Farms Therapeutic Riding Stables. She thoroughly enjoys her students and has been amazed at the “miracles” she has witnessed.
Kate Arnett - Volunteer Coordinator
Kate joined the team at Eagles’ Wings in June of 2020. As the volunteer coordinator, she brings creativity, organization, compassion, and new ideas to our program. She manages some 70 volunteers that come to the stable each week to serve people with special needs. Kate enjoys learning new ways to participate and be part of enriching the lives of others, especially children. She loves to help during lessons by side walking and helping students with their riding activities.
