About

HOLISTIC RIDING EQUESTRIAN THERAPY (HRET) PROGRAM is designed to improve the quality of life physically, emotionally and socially for special needs children, adults and veterans afflicted with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). HRET offers a variety of skill appropriate classes meeting the needs of lower functioning preschoolers on our ponies to independent riders on our horses.

We need volunteers who will attend our clients horseback riding classes and act as a sidewalker, lead the horse, or help with morning farm experience classes. This is a rewarding experience for everyone involved. Please consider joining our organization as the more volunteers we have, the more riders we can teach! You do not need experience with horses to volunteer!

We have evening riding classes and we have morning group classes. Morning classes consist of both riding and a "farm experience" portion.

Please feel free to visit our website holisticridingtherapy.org for more information or contact hretrider@gmail.com.

We have a training session Thursday 9/7 starting at 4 pm. Come take the orientation and training to start volunteering right away!
