Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our mission is to provide children with special needs a foundation for developing life skills through innovative therapies in a safe and caring environment, including equine-assisted physical, occupational and speech therapies.

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.

Volunteer Opportunities

Minimum Age: 16
Sidewalkers assist in hippotherapy sessions by walking alongside the horse to help the therapist stabilize the patient and ensure safety. Starting off we ask volunteers to attend a volunteer orientation and then shadow a few sidewalking sessions. Hippotherapy sessions last for 30 minutes, but we ask volunteers to sign-up for a minimum of 1 hr and ideally a 2-4hours time frame in either the morning or afternoon. We are open Monday-Friday 8am-6pm.
