Our lessons not only involve the aspect of riding horse, but also include ground lessons that are invaluable in so many ways.
Students that come to Fieldstone spend time doing other horse-related activities along with riding as part of their therapy. They may spend time in the classroom doing games or art projects, or learn about horses in general. They may also spend time in the barn grooming our horses or learning all the responsibilities of taking care of horses. These activities benefit the students by teaching responsibility and giving them life-skills that can be transferred to day-to-day living.
Volunteers in this area help create a bond between the students and our horses and help students learn in a safe, fun, and friendly environment.
No experience is necessary! We will teach you what you need to know.
