Sarah Maceyak rediscovered her affinity for riding horses when she began volunteering at NVTRP in 2011. Over the next few years, she became more interested and involved in the program and human-equine interactions. Giving time as a horse leader, creating a NVTRP lending library, and working as a day coordinator allowed her to observe NVTRP’s very positive impact on children and adults participating in the program.
In August 2015, she became a certified therapeutic riding instructor. Sarah brings over 21 years experience as an elementary teacher to the staff. She is currently developing an Equine-Assisted Learning pilot program for NVTRP, to further the educational and literacy benefits.
