Sidewalkers are vital to the success of our therapeutic riding programs. Theses special volunteers help our riders feel safe and secure while providing interaction and guiding participants through activities. Each class is run by a PATH Certified instructor, who will plan and prepare the day's activities. Our season runs April - October. As a volunteer, you will have the ability to sign on for just one 8/9 week session or stay for the entire season! Our 1 hour classes are run on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Volunteers are able to choose the classes that fit their schedule the best. No previous equine experience is necessary.

Mission Statement

Providing equine assisted opportunities for healing, growth and learning.

Description

Serenity Farm Equestrian Center began in August of 2001, by founder Debra DeHoff, to offer equine therapy to community members in Wood County and those surrounding counties. Over the years of community support and involvement, the farm has expanded several times to offer learning programs to children, families and professionals, and increase therapy programs. An average of 50 volunteers give over 5000 hours per year to ensure the success of the non- profit charity. Located just north of Luckey Ohio, the 19 ac farm is home to 9 equines who serve in the seasonal programs. Just 20 min southeast of Toledo, and 12 miles north of Bowling Green, our location is an easy access to clients and families that enjoy the magic of equine assisted learning and therapy. This Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) certified center offers a variety of volunteer opportunities, including PATH mentorships, to volunteers throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Volunteers can choose to work in our riding programs, learn to work with our mini horses in Team Thunder, or even complete behind the scenes or remote tasks. Just an hour a week can make a huge difference in the lives of those we serve. We are excited to be planning for our 20th year as an organization and pride ourselves in offering a unique and educational experience to both our riders and our volunteers.
