2006 Womans & Girls Fund Award

For over twenty years, Sandra Wellford King has been the director and leading light of Talbot Special Riders, a therapeutic riding program.  Her leadership and dedication have strongly contributed to the success of the program, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.   Because of Mrs. King’s energy, enthusiasm and plain hard work, Talbot Special Riders grew each year, ultimately gaining certification from the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association.   For ten weeks each spring and fall, every Tuesday and Thursday morning, she is on the scene helping the riders gain physical strength, poise and self-confidence while mastering new tasks and skills on horseback.   With her passion for horses and compassion for others, Sandra Wellford King brings achievement and joy into the lives of riders and volunteers alike.
