Ralph Edwards is a 93-year old World War II veteran who is a long-time volunteer and visitor of the EquiCenter.
He served in the Army Air Corp in 1943 and came to EquiCenter to volunteer four years ago after his wife passed away. At EquiCenter, Edwards is known as the “Senior Horse Groomer” and volunteers often, sometimes visiting with his friends from Cloverwood Senior Living in Pittsford — where he lives.
In August, Edwards brought his friends from his retirement community to the EquiCenter to tour the facility and learn about the organization that connects fellow veterans, children and adults with disabilities, and at-risk youth, with therapeutic horses.
