Linda Conlee helps participants with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities in all programs at the Southern Reins Center for Equine Therapy in Collierville.
Diane Kirksey, volunteer and program coordinator at the center, said, “Linda works directly with the participants, who benefit from our programs as well as behind the scenes to make them happen. She is kind, considerate and welcoming to every person and every animal.”
Because of her service to the participants and horses, Conlee has been named The Best Times volunteer of the month for March.
Conlee serves as a horse leader, side walker, barn volunteer and assists with outreach and special events, Kirksey said.
“We see riders open up socially and emotionally, try new things physically and connect with others and I believe that Linda’s kindness has a lot to do with it,” Kirksey said.
