Free Rein is a P.A.T.H International Certified organization dedicated to serving children and adults with disabilities through the progressive approach of equine-assisted therapy. Volunteers participate in our one-hour adaptive riding lessons as either a sidewalker, horse leader or class assistant. Sidewalkers work directly with the riders and leaders work with the horses. Typically volunteers sign up for one or more classes per week for up to 12 weeks. We also have farm, office or events projects we need help with occasionally, as well a military horsemanship program designed for veterans! Let us know if you're interested!
