Here’s a glimpse of what we do. Please visit our website for more info.

The Right Path Theraputic Riding & Driving Program serves special needs children and adults, and Veterans. Our program has been going for 22 years, enhancing the lives of people who are differently-abled due to physical/mental challenges they face.

We need horse leaders (lead the horse) and sidewalkers (walk beside the horse to support the rider) weekly during the school year. Wednesday and Thursday 9am-1pm, 3pm to 4pm, and 5pm-6pm; and Friday 9am to 1pm are the class times we most need volunteers. We appreciate a commitment for the whole 12 week semester since riders find comfort in consistency.

No experience necessary. Training is required and provided onsite. Training is scheduled for February 2, 10:00am to 3:00pm. If this training date conflicts with your schedule, please let us know and we will work with you.

Right Path is a great place to serve! It’s amazing to see how horses can help people in so many ways. Rain or shine, we are here providing free equine assisted activities and therapies to those who want and need them. Please visit our website at rightpathridingacademy.org for more information.
