The time I spent at Rocking Horse Rehab was one of the most memorable experiences I have ever been a part of. I was an intern at Rocking Horse from September 2015 until June 2016 and it was the most rewarding experience of my college career.
In my time spent at RHR I was able to create relationships with the entire staff including the horses which enabled me to really be comfortable enough to build relationships with the clients as well. Working with these incredible horses allowed me to be more conscious of myself in many ways which helped me to grow both professionally and personally.
I would recommend this internship program to any prospective student of psychology, social-work, speech and/or occupational therapy. All members of the staff truly care about the impact they make which shows in their work ethic. This inspired me tremendously to be more creative with the children and gave me ideas of career paths I could build upon. There simply are just some things that cannot be learned in the classroom and of course nothing compares to hands-on experience. Whether I was grooming Small Fry or helping one of the children to do so, I found all the work at RHR to be extremely rewarding. This internship was a challenge that I learned a great deal from and I could have not been more grateful to be part of such a team!
