In a sprawling field, nestled among rows of tall pines, a pond and stable of horses, 13 volunteers were welcomed, for the first time, to what will be their weekly home-away-from-home this summer. Wednesday, with daylight waning, first-time volunteers stepped onto the grounds of Statesboro's Fletcher Park for an introduction and orientation to the Statesboro-Bulloch County Parks and Recreation's Stirrup Some Fun Therapeutic Riding Program. The annual Stirrup Some Fun program, which officially gets underway March 22, is designed to offer therapeutic horseback riding sessions to children or adults living with mental, physical and/or emotional disabilities.
