Hero Horse Therapeutic Riding

Image_202010091230

We are a therapeutic riding facility that is in need of volunteers for all aspects of our operation. We are in need of individuals who will help with regular barn chores such as, feeding, watering, mucking stalls, and grooming horses. We also need individuals interested in property handy man work such as, mending fences, mowing and general cleaning. Lastly we need volunteers who are interested in working in the arena as lead and side walkers to our horses and their riders. This is a very rewarding facility to volunteer at as you will interact with students with special needs and be a catalyst on their journey to gaining strength and confidence through the joy of equine assisted therapies and equine assisted lessons.

It is the mission, and purpose of Hero Horse Therapeutic Riding Center to inspire and improve the overall well-being of individuals of all ages who have special needs by partnering them with one of our hero horses trained in equine assisted therapies.
