"While there are plenty of horses and a large barn, Strides of Strength needed some additional classroom space to help with the many camps and clinics that they host. The founder and owner of Gaston Farm Rd Equestrian Center, Beth Gaston, just happened to have an old Rock Hill school bus (without a motor, but still water-tight), but it was in rough shape!
That’s where we come in - our team prepped and painted the bus to look like a barn! Small desks can now be moved in that are used for equine-related crafts, exercises, training, and other classroom-related activities. It was great to see Ryan, Brandon, Steven, and Harry climbing over the bus with grinders, pressure-washers, and scrapers; but even better to see the finished product after a partner-business associate brought out his commercial sprayer and applied the finishing touches!"- to read the full article please visit, Seras IT and Computer Services Columbia, SC— Unique Classroom Creation from your Computer Guys

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we thank Jake Stroud for constructing this ramp for Strides of Strength. The ramp allows persons with limitations to mount a horse and therefore receive the benefits of hippotherapy. To earn his Eagle Scout award, Jake wanted to do something useful and lasting. Thanks to funding from the Chester Foundation and help from brother, Matthew, and friends Ian Rochen, Gavin Herr, Aiden Roberts, and Hunter Bowman, the project was completed in several weeks. We could not be more pleased with the result! The ramp is an essential component in the provision of hippotherapy services, and will provide benefits for children and adults for years to come.
