Volunteers need to be 16 years or older. Volunteers will assist the instructor in the support system needed for therapeutic riding lessons with special need children. Volunteers that are determined to have solid horse experience can also help tack and lead horses in the lessons, and/or do barn chores. Sometimes we have barn shifts available for volunteers 14 or 15 if they are mature and have several years of horse experience. COVID vax required. Volunteer shifts are mostly weekday afternoons for 2 - 4 hours. For more information please see lovelane.org/faq/

Mission Statement

In a fun, supportive environment, Lovelane provides high-quality therapeutic horseback riding to acheive occupational, physical, speech, cognitive and other therapeutic gains, focusing on children with special needs.

Description

Lovelane is a therapeutic horseback riding program that has a dramatic impact on the physical and cognitive development of children with special needs through its holistic approach and unique supportive environment.

Lovelane has been providing high-quality therapeutic horseback riding to children with special needs for 25 years. What started as the ultimate grassroots organization - serving five families in a backyard barn - has grown into a premier equine therapeutic program in a state-of-the-art indoor heated facility located in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

The organization believes in the significance of quality one-on-one support for each child. Our goal is to utilize the horse and this setting to make a significant impact on each child’s life beyond the riding ring. We do this through our personalized sessions, our long-term commitment to their growth, our constant communication with their families and through our intimate experience with their ever-changing needs and development.
