Therapeutic horseback riding and other equine-related activities for adults and children with special needs. Our mission is to improve the lives of these individuals through the use of equine therapy.

Job Description:

Seeking students to assist riders by sidewalking with them during lessons and leading horses for therapuetic riding lessons and activities. We ask that all our volunteers go through NEC trainings, even if they have years of horse experience or have volunteered at another therapeutic riding center.
