Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Spirit Therapies is a non-profit therapeutic riding center that positively impacts the lives of the physically and mentally challenged through connecting with trained therapy horses, certified instructors and compassionate volunteers. We will educate and bring awareness of this valuable therapy to the public, and one day be able to offer therapeutic riding free of charge.
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.
Various Volunteer Opportunities AvailableMinimum Age: 14Spirit welcomes new volunteers and encourage them to become involved in whatever area of our program that fits them best. Helping around the barn feeding and grooming the horses as well as cleaning the stalls are tasks that are necessary every day.
We will also train individuals to work with certified instructors in helping hands-on with the riders during their lessons.
For those who love horses and people, but who might not feel comfortable working with the horses and riders right away, we can always use help in the operational side of our program such as office work or helping with special events.
Our volunteers are our ambassadors to the community, and we encourage them to tell everyone they meet about SPIRIT.If you have the time to give, Spirit Therapies has a place for you. Come look upon our shining SPIRIT and help make a disabled riderâ€™s wish come true.
