There is a good chance that everyone has run into this month’s spotlight volunteer, whether you have come to visit on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday.

Our snowbird, Diane, joined the HHEAL family in December 2021. Since then, she has been working hard to help bring every one of our riders joy and happiness during sessions. Before Diane began volunteering at HHEAL, she volunteered at two other Therapeutic Riding Centers in Ohio for over 20 years!! One thing Diane says she has learned from HHEAL is that there are many ways to run a Therapy barn and help people with disabilities. People may be surprised to know that Diane was a custom window treatment decorator for 24 years. When she is not helping us at HHEAL, she spends time water skiing with her husband and walking their three fur babies: Rae, Portia, and George.


When looking to the future, Diane says that she looks forward to “watching the Heartland program grow and continue to improve.”  We can’t wait to watch this happen as well, and we are thrilled to have you with us each step of the way!!!! Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication!!
