If you visit the Mitey Riders program at Misty Meadows during
lessons on Thursday afternoons, you will find one of our former
riders, Kristen Aldridge, now working as a volunteer.

For the last seven years, she has been one of our most dedicated volunteers! Kristen helps organize and facilitate the tack for every horse and rider on the day’s schedule. While Kristen does not have the ability to speak, everyone can understand her! It is no small feat to coordinate equipment for 18 horses, but if something is incorrect, she will spot it and immediately fix the error. 

We know from Kristen’s mom, who is also a dedicated volunteer, that Mitey Riders has enabled Kristen to be more organized in her daily life, increased her confidence, and helped her make new friends.
