SCOOTERS PLACE

Scooter’s Place provides an adaptive riding program for children and adults who might need a little more patience, including children on the Autism spectrum, children with anxiety disorders and those with Down Syndrome. Scooter’s Place is neither a therapeutic barn nor a mainstream barn but somewhere in between, offering a fun and flexible, but structured and safe environment to learn in. We offer horsemanship education that teaches life skills, self-confidence, and body awareness in a non-restrictive and non-judgmental barn environment.

Our lesson plans change with each individual’s needs, as do the number of volunteers that join the lesson to help. We are looking for a 4-hour shift on a weekly schedule; currently we need week-day volunteers between our core hours of 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

We have been following CDC guidelines by using face masks (required for clients and volunteers) and hand sanitizer and/or hand washing prior to each lesson, as well as after each lesson. We sanitize all our gear after each lesson with a disinfectant spray such as Lysol, and we have antiseptic wipes available, but we make no promise or guarantee we have a germ or virus free environment. Some of our clients simply cannot tolerate a mask due to their health conditions but to be honest most of our clients are fine with wearing masks.
