Local therapeutic horsemanship riding program seeks class volunteers. The program is focused on mental health, selfcare and improved relationships via equine assisted learning.

Do you love helping others, watching positive change happen in people’s lives? Do you love animals and being outside? If you answered yes to these questions then this IS THE volunteer opportunity is for you!

Courageous Connections brings humans and horses together to empower participants with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges towards achieving their individual goals. In short, we create magic by bringing people from all backgrounds and walks of life together to experience the healing power of horses.

About Courageous Connections

Mission Statement

To promote the physical and emotional development of people of all ages and abilities through safe, therapeutic, outdoor experiences.

Description

We are excited to be able to offer equine assisted learning all year round as we now have a space with a covered arena. With all that has gone on in the world around us in the past two years it is more important than ever to have a safe space to explore how you are feeling, how you interact with others and practice self care. Horses have an amazing way of gently helping us 'see' our own behavior and how it might impact those around us. We offer individual class as well as workshops for special groups like Cancer Life Line.
