Gulfshore Life Magazine

Gulfshore Life Magazine was kind enough to allow me to speak with writer Denise Scott  for The Charity Register regarding our experience with Naples Equestrian Challenge.
This is my own photo of Riley on Nick with volunteer Miss Claudia as one of his sidewalkers.
Excerpt from the Setember 2010 issue:
"Stacie Wiesenbaugh of Bonita Springs brings her son Riley Buck, eight, to ride. He was born with a brain hemorrhage that caused cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia, hearing and visual impairments, and other complications that require him to be strapped to the horse. She remembers their first visit. “The wind was really blowing,” she says. “The smell of the barn hit him, and he started laughing hysterically and wouldn’t stop. It was like this place was the right place for him. There are very few opportunities for him to participate in anything and enjoy himself.” "
