Professional staff work closely alongside volunteers with riders to ensure safe riding sessions. A new rider is usually assisted by two side-walkers who stay one on each side the horse, as well as a horse leader, so a minimum of three volunteers are needed per student! No horse experience necessary!
“Matthew’s progress has been amazing! Thanks to hippotherapy he has made huge strides! He has increased his range of motion, increased core strength, he can now run (everywhere he goes!), his confidence has soared, and the list goes on and on! Thank you to ALL who make this possible. Not only does it give him an outlet to look forward to each week, it helps prove to him and the rest of the world that he is more than a diagnosis!” – Beth H., Matthew’s Mom
As a non-profit organization, anything you can give will go directly to our aim of providing equine-assisted therapy for others in need. You’ll be surprised at some of the things we need. Not only riding equipment but also play equipment. If you have any equipment clothing or tack that is clean, safe, and serviceable and that you no longer need please consider donating it. And consider sponsoring a horse’s feed or vet care! Thank you to all of our generous donors and volunteers!
