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

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: Fieldstone Farm Volunteer Application

All potential volunteers must complete a 2-hour orientation prior to volunteering.

All volunteers must be able to walk/jog on uneven ground for up to 45 minutes.

Mission Statement

Fieldstone Farm engages the therapeutic power of our horses to discover and nurture the special abilities of individuals, families and communities.

Description

Our horses are helping our students reach goals they never imagined. People with autism and Down syndrome have said their first words. Adults with multiple sclerosis and children with neurological disorders have improved balance and gained strength after riding. Some have even taken their first steps. Children from the inner-city and high school students with emotional issues have gained confidence and become inspired to learn. Wounded military veterans and seniors with memory deficits have found comfort and hope from our horses.
