Rider Stories

We’ve collected a group of stories about our students and their journeys and experiences at Great Oak.

The Santos Brothers

Ranging in age from 4 to 10, The Santos Brothers have quickly become a living highlight reel on our farm each week. The four boys began riding at Great Oak in May of ‘21. Since then, they have captured the hearts of our volunteers, been celebrated for their achievements by our barn staff, and manage to create moments of situational humor amongst themselves when here.
