Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center provides specialized equine activities to enhance individual wellness. We are a premier accredited program through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International ensuring safety and quality services.
Equine assisted activities and therapies are a unique approach to achieve health and wellness goals. Physical, Occupational, Speech, and Mental Health Therapists partner with horses to assist their clients in their specific area of need.
No prior horse experience is required to volunteer! All volunteers 14+ welcome.
Volunteers are needed to provide rider support for mounted therapeutic riding classes. Volunteers must be able to walk on uneven surfaces for up to an hour or more per class and be able to support children and adults while on horseback. Classes are Mondays through Saturdays, 9:00am - 6:00pm.
Volunteers are also needed for daily barn chores. Monday - Thursday 8:00am - 10:00am and 4:30pm - 5:30pm (flexible) and Friday and Saturday 9:30am - 11:30am.
