Daniele’s experience with Reins of Life began as a volunteer in 2009 at the age of 13. Miss Amanda recognized her potential and when she was of an appropriate age, asked if she might have an interest in becoming a Registered Therapeutic Riding Instructor. After mentoring under Miss Amanda for a year, Daniele passed her testing and became an instructor in the spring of 2015. She joined the staff shortly after. When asked what she likes best about Reins, she answered with a question: “What’s NOT to like? Reins feels like my second home.” Daniele still volunteers in lessons, at events, and exercises horses. Her favorite aspect of teaching riders are the small successes—“They are the best,” she remarks.
