Winslow provides programming for individuals with disabilities, ages range from 5 to 78, we are always looking for volunteers to help give our riders the best experience possible. Without our dedicated volunteers our program wouldn’t be able to reach as many riders as we do.

Mission Statement

WINSLOW’S VISION & MISSION STATEMENT: Therapeutic Riding produces smiles, giggles of joy, and friends. Riding a trained horse who instinctively knows he carries a special passenger lets trust and friendship begin. Physically, the movement of the horse stretches and strengthens muscles, improves balance and coordination and encourages learning. Unlike most therapies, it is FUN! AND, it produces results!

Working together with our staff and other volunteers, you make it possible to provide for disabled children & adults; Equine Assisted Therapeutic horseback riding activities and hippotherapy. In doing so, you contribute to the process of giving our participants one of life’s most precious gifts-a feeling of self-worth, accomplishment and self-esteem, by volunteering at Winslow you can help people with disabilities, work with horses and make new friends.
