I AM NATIONAL ABILITY CENTER

Jose Fernandez-Gill
It’s because of the confidence and self esteem I learned through skiing that I’ve been able to move forward … I’ve gotten back my life, or at the very least, I’m on the way to making it what I want… Continued.
NATE WADE SUBARU

A Partner in Ability.
This month, Nate Wade Subaru presented the National Ability Center with a check for $40,000 as part of their “Share The Love” Campaign.
This marks the third year that Nate Wade has designated the National Ability Center as its “hometown charity” leading to a total of $88,000 raised for the National Ability Center through the campaign alone.
Nate Wade has been a long-time supporter of the National Ability Center, and we are so grateful to Nate Wade Subaru and their customers. Thank you for being a part of our family since the 1990’s.

Meet Missy Cowley, she has been skiing with spina bifida since she was four and has something to teach us all about breaking through boundaries to live with joy and freedom.
From The Horse’s Mouth
Summer Is On Its Way!
While it’s snowing now, we had a few weeks of spring at the ranch, and all of the horses want to give a big whinny-out to the volunteers and staff that keep us ready to go for lessons all year.
We can’t wait for summer, and this year’s latest addition to our equestrian programs…Adaptive trail riding! Bring your whole family to ride with us out on the trails of Round Valley
