Currently, our hours of operation are Monday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday mornings. Riding sessions are 30 minutes in length.
Riders make a donation of $10 or more per session; however, those without funds are supported by our sponsoring businesses and organizations. No one is turned away because of inability to pay.
Eligible riders can compete in regional and state Special Olympics. We also participate in the Top Hands Horse Show and various local events. A S.H.A.R.E. rider represented the USA and competed in the 2007 Special Olympics World Games in China.
SHARE offers year-round swimming at the College Station Middle School Natatorium on Friday evenings from to . This facility is made available through College Station Parks & Recreation, and is available to us year-round, although the pool is closed to the public during the summer. The pool fee is $2.00 per swim or $25 for 40 swims.
This is a chance to swim year-round for exercise, improvement of skills, or to learn how to swim. Water aerobics are also available on a limited basis.
SHARE will have a swim team for Special Olympics comprised of individuals who are learning how to swim and/or who are too young or do not wish to compete with the Aggie Bombers Swim Team. For individuals already on a swim team this program offers a chance to swim year-round in addition to practices for their current team.
As always, the swimming program is open to all members of the family.
Donations to SHARE are always, gratefully, accepted.
