About

Holistic Riding Equestrian Therapy (HRET) is designed to improve the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social aspects of the lives of children and adults with special needs and veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). HRET offers a variety of skill appropriate classes meeting the needs of preschoolers on our ponies to independent riders on our program safe horses.

We need volunteers who will act as a sidewalker, lead the horse, or help with morning farm experience classes. This is a rewarding experience for everyone involved and we all work as a team. Please consider joining our organization as the more volunteers we have, the more riders we can teach! We are a 501 (c) 3 non profit that is 99% volunteer run. 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.
