Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We Can Ride, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, volunteer-based organization whose mission is serving children and adults living with physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disabilities. Our goal is to enhance our client’s skills and well being through challenging programs of therapeutic horseback riding.
We Can Ride, Inc. is a Premier Accredited Therapeutic Riding Center with PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International).
At We Can Ride, equine-assisted Therapeutic Riding is for individuals from six years old to 70 years young. These classes are taught by PATH International Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors with the help of our Therapists. Along with the many therapeutic benefits of being on a moving horse, our goals are to teach horsemanship skills. Clients may also learn to groom, lead, saddle and mount their horses. These riders may also go on to compete in Special Olympics. Class sizes are from three to six and include the use of one to three volunteers per client.
We Can Ride’s Hippotherapy program involves a credentialed physical or occupational therapist working one-on-one with the client to reach traditional therapy goals without teaching specific riding skills. The therapist works with a certified instructor to create the type of movements from the horse to meet the specific treatment goals. Trained volunteers also help with balance and postural corrections.
