P.O. Box 14058, Albuquerque, NM 87191, US

Mission Statement

To provide equine-assisted activities to individuals with physical, developmental, emotional and/or social needs through innovative riding, vaulting and ground programs.

Description

Cloud Dancers Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, Inc. (Cloud Dancers) was founded in 1982 to address the needs of individuals with disabilities, age 5 and older, through fun and beneficial riding activities and bonds with special horses. We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization located in Corrales, New Mexico.

Our PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) certified instructors and trained volunteers work with families in developing goals and implementing fun activities that booster self-esteem and confidence, improve flexibility, balance, core & muscle strength, hand-eye coordination, social and communication skills, ability to follow instructions, and more. While improving quality of life, riders are developing bonds with horses who are intuitive, non-judgmental and loving and are having fun. Many of our riders call Cloud Dancer "their happy place".

Imagine a young man with Cerebral Palsy who has been in a wheel chair most of his life, riding atop a 1,000 pound horse, with his hands in the air, shouting "I'm free". As a volunteer with Cloud Dancers, you will experience as much joy and benefit as our riders do.

Volunteer positions include working hands-on with horses and riders, as well as administrative support roles in social media, photography & videography, data entry & statistical gathering, maintenance and grounds, marketing and fund raising.
