20th Anniversary Winter 2010 - 2011

N 1991 DI


Dear Friends of SETCH:

As you may already know, Kristy Pigeon, the Founder of SETCH has retired as the Executive Director after 19 years of dedicated service to the organization she founded. She is an extraordinary person who had the vision to start a riding program for disabled people at her Sagebrush Arena. She then inspired others to join with her as volunteers, instructors, donors and riders to build it into a program that serves over 200 physically, mentally, and emotionally challenged riders each year at no cost to them. Kristy has been working toward retirement for the past several years, turning more and more of the operational responsibility over to the staff and the Board of Directors. She has promised to keep in touch with the program so this will definitely not be goodbye. As in the past, SETCH will continue to lease the Sagebrush Arena from Kristy. We are fortunate that Leslie Benz, the Vice-President for Development on the SETCH Board of Directors, will be working as the Acting Executive Director until a new Executive Director is hired. The biggest “thank you” we can give Kristy is to continue the work she started so the program will continue to serve the needs of our riders. But I hope you will join us at the 20th Anniversary Cowboy Ball on July 7, 2011, as we personally honor and thank Kristy for the foresight, commitment, dedication Photo taken in 1995 and love she has exhibited over the past nineteen years. On behalf of the SETCH Board and all of us who delight in knowing her we wish her …Happy Trails!

SETCH is a 501 (c)(3) Idaho non-profit corporation founded in 1991 to provide equine-facilitated therapy for challenged adults and children. Our goal is to provide physical, cognitive and emotional benefits that will encourage independence, help develop life skills and improve quality of life.

Little did I know when I built the Sagebrush Arena in 1991 that the therapeutic riding program would have such a strong impact on so many special people! Since the early works of Hippocrates the horse has been recognized for its healing properties. During my own discoveries over the past 25 years of working with horses and people, I have witnessed profound results in improved physical skills, cognitive function and social interactions that all add up to overall life enhancement. The most fascinating aspect of our work is the vast applications of horse therapy that can be employed to address a broad range of disabilities. For example: through responding to the multi-directional movement of the horse, a child with cerebral palsy can improve balance and coordination that may assist in gaining the strength required to learn to walk. Autistic riders can learn to communicate verbally and physically with their horse, and in turn, receive an immediate response when their horse reacts to their cue. In addition, the Sagebrush provides a safe, nurturing environment where “at risk� youth can develop accountability and improve self-esteem. Please visit the Sagebrush to witness, firsthand, the many ways humans can benefit from horses! THANK YOU patrons and volunteers for your strong commitment to help our students to make incredible life strides one hoof beat at a time!

C harlie PROBABLY won t win cutting HORSE of the year but he will ...GIVE TERESA A BETTER LIFE “I don’t know the science behind therapeutic riding, I only know that it works, and it works like nothing else. I can’t say why the six-way motion -- forward, backward, side-to-side, up and down -- of a moving horse produces results in the human body, even when said body is supposed to not be working. In my case, a C4 quadriplegic paralyzed from the shoulders down, there is no reason to expect that sitting astride a horse will stimulate core muscles to help provide stability and balance to a body that has lost all its function. And yet it has. I’ve tried other therapies, and I’ve tried to simulate the benefit of equine therapy. But as it turns out, there is no substitution for the back of a horse--and a group of willing helpers to realize the impossible.” “Living with disability, particularly with the consequences of injuries as severe as mine, is not only isolating and frustrating but staggeringly expensive. Everything I once did for myself, by myself, without a thought, I must now pay others to do for me, round-the-clock, for life. At the same time, a feasible path toward earning any portion of that living is obscure at best. For a program like SETCH to exist and be

accessible to people like me, at no cost, is an incalculable benefit. It really is a life-changing service that these professionals provide. They are breaking down barriers in so many ways...rebuilding physical strength & selfconfidence, restoring an avenue for social interaction, and, not coincidentally, chipping away at assumptions, myths and prejudices held by the misinformed ablebodied majority--of which I was formerly a member. “ “If you had a sibling, spouse, parent, child or best friend who became disabled, there is no way you would not want for them what Sagebrush can provide. May donors continue to recognize, and make possible, the benefits of their existence for a long time to come.”

from the Director

Sagebrush is about connecting the basic rhythms of life. With rhythm comes change and opportunity. While we say goodbye to Kristy as Director, her inspiration and years of dedication to the SETCH program will continue to grow. What better time than our 20th year to celebrate the achievements realized under Kristy’s direction and to explore new adventures for everyone who makes the SETCH dream a reality? In the rush of 2010, SETCH welcomed many returning faces while adding to our ever-growing family of riders, volunteers and staff. Our 19th year brought 140 volunteers through the Sagebrush Arena who provide varying levels of therapeutic services for more than 130 riders. In the spring, SETCH hosted a NARHA Advanced Workshop and is proud to announce that two of our instructors earned their advanced certifications. Camp Rainbow Gold is always a highlight and was expanded to two days of trail rides giving every child time to shine, Sagebrush style. The 3rd Annual Sagebrush Stampede brought entries from all over southern Idaho and was a tremendous success for riders as well as the Sagebrush family. Finally, this year’s Cowboy Ball, themed “Mustangs & Moonlight”, absolutely transformed the arena and was truly a magical event. THANK YOU to everyone who made that night (and all of our 2010 events) a huge success. The services provided through SETCH impact families from all walks of life and from every angle. It is through our community, patrons, businesses and foundations that we are able to offer services to any child or adult in need at no cost. As Acting Director, I am honored to be involved in such a strongly supported program and I often wonder who benefits most, the riders in need or those of us assisting them.

Leslie Benz Acting Director

SETCH Programs

RANCh HANDS is a summer work/study program for at-risk teenagers. Teens learn

responsibility and accountability by working with adult mentors through assisting with equine-assisted therapy sessions and performing maintenance projects. Each participant signs a contract at the beginning of the summer and receives a bonus at the end once fulfilled. YOUTh HORSEMANShIP - Course for children ages 9-13. Focused on improving social skills, building confidence and cognitive processing, SETCH provides transportation and a two-hour course once a week during the summer which includes a mounted riding lesson and complete horsemanship instruction on the ground. BLAINE COUNTy SChOOL PROGRAM - SETCH provides an equine-assisted learning

class for students in a special education classroom or on an IEP (independent educational program). Over 60 students from eight classrooms participate weekly in therapeutic riding.

COMMUNITy SERvICE PROGRAM - Suspended or expelled Blaine County School

students are referred to perform community service at the Sagebrush. These students learn life skills and improve accountability in a safe, positive environment by assisting with therapeutic riding lessons and performing maintenance chores.


- Students participate in weekly riding sessions focusing on utilizing the multidirectional movement of the horse to improve strength, balance, and coordination. In addition, the students experience improvements in cognitive processing, confidence and social interaction.

TRAIL RIDING - With the use of SETCH designed saddles, students who have progressed from equine-assisted therapy to independent riding are taken on trail rides. Our saddles allow people faced with serious physical conditions to experience the beauty of the Wood River Valley astride a horse. SAGEbRUSh STAMPEDE - SETCH hosts an annual adaptive rodeo and horse show for riders with physical or cognitive challenges. Participants and their horses come from all over southern Idaho to compete and have fun in events such as barrel racing, pole bending and ranch sorting. SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS - SETCH

provides horseback riding for children at Camp Rainbow Gold, the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind and Dreams Come True Programs. EQUIPMENT DESIGN - SETCH is the forerunner in adaptive riding equipment design. This research is available to other therapeutic riding centers and individuals worldwide. Our design for adapted western saddles to help challenged individuals ride with greater independence is published in the textbook, Therapeutic Riding, Strategies for Instruction and Rehabilitation. INSTRUCTOR INTERNShIP - People interested in learning about therapeutic riding

instruction and pursuing their instructor certification through NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped) can intern with SETCH. Interns will have an opportunity to gain teaching and riding experience with the guidance of a NARHA certified instructor.

“In riding a horse we borrow freedom.� - Helen Thomson

I saw a child who couldn’t walk, Sit on a horse, laugh and talk. Then ride through a field of daisies and yet, he couldn’t walk unaided. I saw a child, no legs below, sit on a horse and make it go through woods of green and places he had never been to sit and stare, except from a chair. I saw a child who couldn’t crawl mount a horse and sit up tall. Put it through degrees of paces and laugh at the wonder in our faces. I saw a child born into strife, Take up and hold the reins of life and that same child, I heard him say Thank You for showing me the way... by John Anthony Davies


“The riding program at Sagebrush has had an amazing impact on Diesel and helped encourage and strengthen his building blocks of communication. Since he began riding over two years ago, now five years old, he continues to grow with each session and expand his abilities by challenging him to do more and more each time. It has been very empowering for him to know that he can control such a large animal and can communicate to it what he wants it to do. He has built strong bonds with his instructors at Sagebrush, not to mention his connection to the horses. This extraordinary place is an environment in which Diesel feels comfortable, happy, welcome and most of all special.” – Kory Ward, Diesel’s mother. Diesel, diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, currently receives equine-facilitated therapy once a week.

BLAZE may no longer be the QUEEN’s mount

Blaze, one of SETCH’s newest equine residents, was purchased through a generous donation by Colin and Jill George & John F. Smiekel Foundation. Students and staff immediately fell in love with Blaze’s gentle personality, kind eyes and wild mane. First discovered in Idaho Falls, it wasn’t until Blaze had settled into his new home that we learned of his history in the valley. Blaze’s previous owner, Brooke Selisch, a devoted equestrian who took lessons at Sagebrush lost her life to a car accident in 2008. She had competed in local jumping and dressage competitions with Blaze before going on to become the 5th District High School rodeo queen. Brooke’s parents were happy to hear he was back in the valley and working with the SETCH program. “We trusted him with Brooke,” they said after reuniting with Blaze at Sagebrush. “We feel her spirit is in that horse.” Blaze quickly adapted to his new life as a therapy horse and continues to be a favorite among the many riders he carries.

...but he has jumped right into our hearts


“I first came to Sagebrush when I was in the fourth grade. I was nervous, but it didn’t take long for me to trust the horses and the staff. I soon came to look forward to horseback riding as the best part of my week. I later came back to work during the summers as a ranch hand. I love that the staff treated me like an adult; I learned how to do things that I wouldn’t have learned anywhere else. Working at the Cowboy Ball and making such a difference made me feel important. Now when I come to Sagebrush, everything I have going bad is gone. I have learned to not take life for granted. The staff have given me confidence and made me who I am today, and I am happy with that person. Sagebrush gave me hope and gave me a new life. I honestly can say that I wouldn’t be here without this place.”

Tyler currently works part time and volunteers the rest of his time assisting with therapeutic riding lessons.

Camo (30) and Otis (29), owned by Kelly Cole, have retired after 19 and 12 years, respectively, of service to the therapeutic riding program. They will be missed, but will enjoy their golden years eating fresh grass and running freely.

Artex, owned by the Irby family, passed away on December 30, 2009 after four years of dedicated service in helping challenged children in learning to walk, to talk, and to build confidence through learning to ride. She is greatly missed.

Trigger passed away on June 1, 2010 after three years of service as a therapy horse. He served disabled adults including injured Iraqi war veterans and individuals with traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. He was also our vaulting horse, allowing children to perform gymnastics on his back! He was a one of a kind guy.

We couldn’t have done it without you!
