Our Program aims to relieve conditions associated with disability by providing therapeutic riding programs to support the physical, mental, and emotional well being of individuals and their families. Volunteers will help with all aspects of the therapeutic horseback riding sessions including working with horses (grooming, tacking, and post lesson turn-out), as well as participating during the sessions as a horse leader or side walker (if the participant requires assistance). Volunteers are required to be at least 16 years old. Volunteers should like to be around horses.
