About

Do you like working with horses and children? We have the perfect opportunity for you! Freedom Ride offers therapeudic horseback riding to individuals with special needs. Our orietnations happen once a month. Upon completing a brief orientation, our volunteers assist in the daily care of our program horses. They help keep the stalls clean, groom, feed and tack horses for the lessons. Volunteers also work side-by-side with our students during their lessons either by handling the horse or side walking with the client. Horse handlers assist in controlling the horse until the student becomes confident and capable of doing so. Side walkers help support the rider on the horse and offer guidance and assistance during their lesson. Unfortunately we cannot accept court ordered community service.
