About

Pony Power Therapies is looking for volunteers to assist in therapeutic horse-back riding lessons as lead walkers or side walkers for our Summer Semester! Lessons run Monday through Thursday. Morning shifts run 8 to 10 AM and afternoon shifts run from 3 to 6 PM. Our Summer Semester begins on July 10th and runs through to August 24th. (Only those with previous horse experience will be assigned as horse leader.)

Pony Power Therapies gives special needs and at-risk children and adults a unique opportunity to ride, care for and interact with horses. Our riding and non-riding activities enhance individuals' physical, social and emotional well-being in a safe, nurturing farm environment.
