We need you! Come join us in our program of Horses in Service for People Living with Disabilities!

You don't need to know anything about horses or disabilities to participate - we will train you! We want enthusiastic, dependable volunteers (ages 15+) to join us. You sidewalk next to the horse, guarding and cheering on a special needs rider. With horse experience, you may lead the horse for the rider. Volunteers come early to get the horses ready. Reliability is a must. Visit our website for more information about the volunteer positions available and what we're looking for in a volunteer.

Days and times vary; contact us for information. This listing covers Summer and Autumn, nine weeks each.

Thank you. We can't serve our riders without you.

Mission Statement

Stable Pathways - Horses in Service to People Living with Disabilities Our mission is to empower, strengthen, and inspire those living with disabilities through horse-assisted activities.

Description

In 2009, we began Stable Pathways horse-assisted therapeutic activities for people living with physical and cognitive challenges. We offer programming so they can experience the many benefits of riding or interacting with horses!

For a rider, the movement of the horse can improve balance, stability, muscle tone, flexibility, core strength, focus, and coordination.

And there is more to horse-assisted therapeutic activities than just physical benefits - a relationship with a horse may increase self-confidence, promote self-discovery, and encourage sensitivity and nurturing towards animals and people.
