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:
Manna's Hana Riding Center is founded through love to provide recreational riding for individuals with special needs by means of equine-assisted activities.
Manna's Hana VolunteerMinimum Age: 13Program Volunteers: assist by leading horses or walking beside students (sidewalking) during classes. Horse leaders need a general knowledge of horses. Horse leaders may assist in preparing horses for classes (grooming and tacking) and are responsible for leading horses during class. Sidewalkers do not need horse experience. They are responsible for communicating with the students and offering them physical and emotional support. Program volunteers should be willing to commit to the same day and time each week and are required to attend our introductory volunteer orientation and training session.
Stable Help/PonyPal VolunteersMinimum Age: 13assist with general barn chores and work directly with barn staff to care for the horses and get them ready for program (grooming and tacking). These volunteers should be willing to commit to a specified, consistent period of time each week. They also help with general maintenance, repairs and improvements of the facility, including fence repair, manure management, gardening and trail maintenance. They are required to attend our introductory volunteer orientation and training session prior to beginning their work.. Riding volunteers are experienced riders who have passed an evaluation qualifying them to help us school and exercise our horses when they are not working in the program.
