Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Saddles of Joy, Inc. is a therapeutic riding program dedicated to introduce children, or any person with the desire to the joy and value of one of God's most Beautiful creatures, "The Horse". It is our desire to educate the community and or any interested party to the Therapeutic value of horse and rider. Be it child or adult, we continue on with understanding and physical ability of our riders. We here at Saddles of Joy, Inc. acknowledge the level of success is simply putting the two together, horse and rider, with positive results. We allow the gentle nature of our four legged therapists to produce any and all healing physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. That is what therapeutic riding at this level is all about. It is our hope and desire here at Saddles of Joy, Inc. that we provide this service, we are improving the quality of life for both horse and rider, as well as produce a bond of healing. We are a non-profit organization and offer this service to the community as such.
