Why are we a Messenger?

The EQUUS Foundation has designated our organization as a Messenger. Click here to learn more about our horse care and use practices.

Messengers are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations.

Equine Welfare Network Messenger

Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To strengthen individuals with special needs, their families, and our communities by providing evidence-based therapeutic interventions using equine-assisted activities.

Horse-related programs:
We provide therapeutic riding, equine-assisted learning, and family lessons at our facility. We are the home of the local Special Olympics team. We also offered integrative summer camps, and are working to develop a vocational training and placement program for young adults with special needs.

Non-horse-related programs:

Volunteer Opportunities

Horse Leader/Sidewalker
Minimum Age: 14
We are always in need of program volunteers during our operating season, March-November. These volunteers are critical in making our lessons feasible and safe for our participants. Horse leaders control the horse during therapeutic riding lessons, and sidewalkers walk beside the rider, providing support.

Summer Camp Volunteer
Minimum Age: 18
Throughout the summer, we periodically hold week-long summer camps. Camps typically run in the mornings for half days, and include both unmounted and mounted activities. We require a 1:1 volunteer:participant ratio, so look for volunteers to be a participant's 'buddy' throughout the week. 2014 dates are July 14-18, July 28-Aug 1, August 11-15, and an all-day camp August 18-22.
