Children of the Americas5-stars

“I have made seven trips to Guatemala as an orthopedic surgeon with Children of the Americas. I had looked for years prior to finding this team of organized, efficient, skilled volunteers for a way to make a difference and impact the lives of others. This cost-effective group allows me to function as a fully practicing orthopedic surgeon providing ambulatory, surgical, and orthotic/prosthetic care for those in greatest need. I truly believe that, in doing so with this group, the blessings I receive outnumber the (surgical) donations I provide!” –gboneq123

National Walking Horse Association5-stars

“The National Walking Horse Association is a prime example of how things can be changed for the positive. That change came from the courage of a few dedicated people. Those few sacrificed their time, effort, and own resources to start this organization. Because of those few, our organization has come a long way in a short time. Those few have multiplied and continue to grow.

“The NWHA is an organization that promotes the sound practices of training and exhibiting the Tennessee Walking Horse. It is also an organization that is just fun to be a part of. People encourage their fellow exhibitor and are more than willing to lend a helping hand. This organization looks for the positive.

“Thanks to the founding members for their foresight and courage to establish a change in the world of the Tennessess Walking Horse.” –earlb
