Students with special needs learn to ride horses to gain confidence and strength.

About

Fieldstone Farm provides therapeutic riding lessons for individuals with disabilities. Our volunteers are invaluable in the success of the students experience. Volunteers will help prepare the horses for lessons, sometimes teaching the students to accomplish this as well. Volunteers will help during the lesson with either leading the horse or sidewalking with the student to ensure the student's safety and help the student complete the tasks while riding. Most importantly, the volunteers help students have fun!

No experience is necessary! We will teach you what you need to know.

All potential volunteers must fill out an application. This can be done at: https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/weblink.aspx?name=fieldstonefarm&id=5
