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 and shelter of horses.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Partnering with our horses, we challenge individuals with special needs to reach their fullest potential.
Office VolunteersMinimum Age: 14We are blessed with an up to date computer system and office equipment. With a very limited staff, InStride will always benefit from volunteers with a wide range of abilities in communications, marketing, fundraising, and general office skills.
Program VolunteersMinimum Age: 14We couldn't serve almost 100 riders weekly without dedicated volunteers to be trained as lead or side walkers, prepare horses and manage our program process.
Barn Help And Facility MaintenanceMinimum Age: 14With both therapy horses and boarders, InStride is always in need of volunteers to groom, wash, and care for our horses. We are also blessed with 76 fenced partially wooded acres that require constant care and attention.
Arena Drag UnitTo keep our covered arena safe and smooth for the comfort of our riders, side walkers and horses.
ScholarshipsEven though we operate very efficiently, 70 percent of our costs are supported by donors, grants and charitable events. We accept Medicaid and lose 51 dollars for every half hour session, up to four thousand dollars annually per rider. Please support our riders and make a real difference.
