Our mission is to provide equine assisted activities and therapies to children and adults with physical, cognitive and/or emotional disabilities. We strive to enhance the lives of our riders, their families and volunteers in a safe, equestrian oriented environment.
PoVa Therapeutic Riding Centern is a 501 c3 non-profit located at the Stock Farm in Poway. Working with very special horses and a dedicated group of volunteers, we offer private and semi-private horseback riding lessons to children and adults with disabilities. Lessons are taught both in the arena and on a beautifully shaded trail.
I have been volunteering at PoVa TRC for just over six months and I have to say that it is well worth your consideration if you are interested in working with horses, children with special needs and an amazingly dedicated crew.
Bring your skills and develop some new ones. Whether you are a teen or a senior (or anywhere inbetween) you will be welcomed and appreciated.
If you like what you see when you visit the web site, come on out to the ranch site and "get your boots dirty" as Ingrid (the Executive Director) says.
Take a look around and chances are you'll stick around!
See you there,
This place is great fun to be at if you are interested in becoming more familier with horses, or know them well, and if you want to help people out in general. It is always great fun when I'm there, and I can't seem to be in a bad mood. I love working with everyone who volunteers there, because everyone seems to love it as well. It is always a fun time at PoVa!
