Goodbye Dundee

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we bid farewell to our loving friend, Dundee. Dundee was the patriarch of our equestrian therapeutic riding horses here at SERT. Dundee came to us on February 14th, 2004, the best Valentine’s Day present anyone could ask for.

Our horses provide children and adults with special needs the ability to practice skills needed to face fears, communicate feelings, and access strengths. Riders excel at adaptive games from atop SERT's gentle giants, where learning becomes fun!

Dundee was an Oldenburg Warmblood with dressage training, and many of the SERT students have benefitted from his sweet and gentle disposition. He had character and personality to spare, showing patience with his special riders even when times became stressful.

As of July 2016, Dundee retired from active riding sessions, but continued to be a participant in ground lessons (grooming and caring for horses) which assisted our special needs students in many of the ways the riding lessons have.

Through the generous donations of our friends, Dundee remained with the SERT herd, celebrating his 30th birthday not long ago.

Goodbye Dundee. We will never forget you.
