Rotary Gives Horseback Riding Scholarship

Tuesday February 14, 2023

An individual with disabilities will be able to have horseback riding lessons this spring thanks to a scholarship awarded by Rotary Club of Ipswich-Rowley and Windrush Farm in North Andover.
Any disabled adult, at least 18 years old and under 185 pounds, who lives in Ipswich or Rowley, was eligible for the scholarship. The winner will be chosen from essays submitted on why he or she wants to participate in therapeutic riding lessons at Windrush Farm.
Children, adolescents, and adults facing physical, cognitive or emotional challenges can receive quality equine-assisted services at Windrush Farm, which was founded in 1964. Therapeutic riding, unmounted programs and other horse-related services are available.
“We’re so excited to welcome an Ipswich or Rowley resident to the farm through this scholarship,” Windrush Farm CEO Janet Nittmann said. “We’re looking forward to spring, which is a beautiful time of the year at the farm. The timing couldn’t be better, and Rotary is about to give someone an unforgettable life experience.”
The riding lessons will be conducted in groups, and a physician’s statement is required.
