SARI was founded in 1978 in memory of a little girl who loved animals. Sari Greenberg was born with Down Syndrome at a time when children with disabilities were often put in care. Instead, Syd and Jeanne embraced the opportunity to bring her home to the farm where SARI currently stands.
The vision and compassion of two parents put therapeutic riding on the map. It is now a valuable activity that has changed the lives of many others. The dedication of staff and volunteers makes SARI one of Southwestern Ontario's most well respected therapeutic riding organizations.
