He currently manages Mary's Acres Equestrian Centre in Bellefonte, that offers boarding, training and lessons. He also travels to clients locations to train and give lessons. Chuck's parents were Foster Parents and Fresh Air Hosts. He grew up helping many foster children. In 2011 he began working with Horses of Hope and in 2012 he became a certified PATH Instructor and began helping those in need with the healing power of Equine Therapeutic Riding.
Kim Roush has been riding and working with horses since she was 10 (and we won't say how many years ago that was...). Kim has a heart for riding and teaching others to ride. At one point in her life she worked in group homes with the developmentally disabled and simultaneously worked with some of the same clients as a certified therapeutic riding instructor. Kim enjoys working with the wonderful participants, volunteers and horses at Horses of Hope!
