The Story Behind Bit of Faith
Our founder, Tammy Romanczuk, has been riding and caring for horses her entire life. She also has a son who is impacted by non-verbal autism. Tammy often gave her son rides around her property, and when they went over a dirt mound she would say, “Up! Up! Up!" and "Down! Down! Down!”
One day she was not really paying attention and did not say her usual chant, and out of no where she heard her non-verbal son say “Up. Up. Up” as they were going over the hill. She then realized horseback riding was making a big impact on him. She dreamed of combining her love for horses and her love for her son, and others like him, into something others could benefit from.
After a few years gaining the skills to offer adaptive riding she began having riding sessions at the ranch. The riders have blossomed as they learned to ride and enjoy a special connection with horses. During the sessions, the parents and caregivers stayed and watched, but it was apparent that they enjoyed the much needed break.
We decided to add social and recreational outing for the individuals we serve and their families. Massages, movie outings, and moms night out are some of the recreation and respite activities currently offered.
“I love being able to share horsemanship skills and equestrian appreciation with the upcoming generations, and to be able to do that while promoting inclusion is the absolute best.”
