Wood River resident and retired fire fighter, Pete Stephenson, has volunteered hundreds of hours at the Swiftsure Ranch Therapeutic Equestrian Center over the past five years. His hard work has enabled many adults and children with disabilities to be able to ride horses at no charge. Not only has he helped in lessons, but he has also helped build and fix fence, cut down trees, clear trails, clean up manure, and much more. He is truly a blessing! We recently nominated him and he was selected the Volunteer of the Year for the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.), and he was selected for Region 9! Pete will be honored at the PATH Intl. Conference in Orlando, Florida in November 2014. Thank you for all of your hard work, dedication, and love, Pete!
