Community Care Services

Justice Resource Institute’s equine therapy program, Trot On, is looking for a part time volunteer to support one of our ongoing school groups, based in Marshfield, MA.

You will be supporting the healing power of horses by acting as a horse leader during our equine therapy group.

You will be responsible for tacking/untacking horses in preparation, leading the horse during the one hour group, and offering indirect support to the youth we work with.

Our equine therapy group offers adolescents support in the areas of regulation, social skill building, perspective taking, and building trusting relationships. You will be essential to supporting this process through your ability to lead well trained horses, attune to the horse’s needs, manage their behavior, and attend to safety needs of the horse and rider.

This opportunity is perfect for anyone interested in equine therapy, therapeutic riding, or expanding their clinical experience.

Ideally you will have experience working with horses in any capacity. We will work with you to ensure you feel comfortable safely leading the horses.

This opportunity is for a weekly group, Mondays 11-12. (Volunteer time would be from 10:30-12:15 to support preparation and after care for the horses). Starting 9/27/21.
