TherapyWorks NW

TherapyWorks NW is a nonprofit therapy clinic serving children and their families in East Multnomah County. One kind of therapy provided is Hippotherapy where horses are used for grooming and riding in a small arena barn located at our clinic site. Weekend barn help is needed to train for a shift that would involve feeding horses either their AM or PM and ideally helping with stall cleaning and as needed other chores or maintenance that come up. At the moment weekends are a quiet time at the barn when no therapy appointments are taking place. It can be enjoyable to go and spend time doing some simple farm work for mild exercise and a break from life's normal routine. A mature minded person (could be a teen) who can work independently is a must. An individual or team with some background for basic tool use would be helpful.
