Description

Stirrup Some Fun is an Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) program provided at Fletcher Park in Statesboro, Georgia. All three of us have volunteered here over the past two semesters and have gained 25 hours of volunteer experience each. Known benefits of EAT include physical as well as psychological benefits. Through service-learning, we have been able to see these benefits first-hand and relate them to the content we have gone over in class. To gather information for our research, we wrote blogs throughout the time spent volunteering and collected our first hand experiences along with other students that participated in the volunteering. Through blogs, in class discussions, and our experience at service-learning, the work we have accomplished has benefitted more than just the clients, but has benefited us as well. It has become much more than merely volunteer work, thus further solidifying the bond between service and learning for us.
