About

HOLISTIC RIDING EQUESTRIAN THERAPY (HRET) PROGRAM is designed to improve the quality of life physically, emotionally, cognitively, and socially for children and adults with special needs. HRET offers a variety of skill appropriate classes meeting the needs of riders from preschoolers on our ponies to independent riders on our program safe horses.

We need volunteers who will act as a side walker (walking next to the rider at all times), 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.
****Training is required to be PATH (Professional Assoc. of Therapeutic Horsemanship) compliant.

Sunday July 29th, 2018 1:00-5:00 PM @ Kopping Farm
Thursday August 2nd, 2018 4:00-8:00 PM @ Kopping Farm
