Mission Statement

Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center creates therapeutic programs for individuals with cognitive, physical, emotional, behavioral and psychological needs utilizing the equine experience. At Ivy Hill, Horses + Love = Hope.

Description

What do we offer?
We offer customized horsemanship and therapeutic horseback riding instruction, as well as Hippotherapy (physical therapy utilizing the movement of the horse) to individuals of all ages with cognitive, emotional or physical challenges.

Why are therapeutic riding and hippotherapy benificial?
The interaction between humans and horses has recognizable therapeutic benefits. Many of our riders are referred to Ivy Hill from educators and medical professionals with the goal of achieving specific physical, emotional and cognitive accomplishments. Our specialized programs are designed for the needs of each rider and can facilitate a variety of positive achievements in areas such as physical, cognitive, and emotional.

Would you recommend Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center?

Ivy Hill Equestrian is an awesome place to volunteer! I didn't have any experience with horses and they still let me volunteer. They will give you hands-on experience and have tons of patience. They have training if you want to lead horses or be a side-aid. Anyone who wants to learn more about horses or learn more about working and helping the disabled should volunter at Ivy Hill.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
