Happy Campers

Great and Small provides equine-assisted activities and therapies to children and adults with a variety of special needs. Program volunteers work directly with our horses and riders in therapeutic riding lessons and mounted speech-language therapy sessions by leading the horses or sidewalking with the riders. Previous experience with horses is welcome but not required. Without volunteers, these children and adults would not be able to ride. Join us!
