TherapyWorks NW is a nonprofit pediatric therapy clinic offering physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and hippotherapy. We have horses and a small horse barn for our hippotherapy. There are always chores to be done in the barn and we could use some help with horse feeding and stall cleaning!

A weekly shift can be chosen or our hours can be flexible and based on a fill-in basis for when you have availability to come out.

*Covid-19 precautions are in place:

  • masks are required in the barn for staff, volunteers, and visitors when the arena is closed and when social distancing is not possible
  • temperature scans are required at the beginning of each shift and recorded on a clipboard with pre-screening questions
  • we have surgical masks, gloves, face shields, and protective eyeglasses available for volunteers to use
