Mission Statement

The philosophy of the Therapeutic Riding program at

Breezy Hill is to expose those with physical, developmental and social delays to the joys and benefits of horseback riding while simultaneously providing specific therapeutic interventions. The Therapeutic Riding program at Breezy Hill emphasizes the enjoyment and freedom of riding a horse. Therapeutic interventions are integrated within the riding experience and facilitate self sufficiency in daily living tasks. The ultimate goal of this program is to increase independence in all areas of living while participating in a fun activity.

Description

Volunteers will need to help with grooming and tacking up the horse for the lesson, during the lesson to assist the rider by side walking or leading the horse, Breezy Hill has an indoor/outdoor arena. We take our riders for trail rides on the property. After riding, some help with putting up tack and horses. Help is needed at horse shows, and fundraising events.

Volunteers need to be at least 14 yrs of age. Horse knowledge is an advantage but not a requirement. Skills will be taught on premises.

Smiles, patience and commitment are most important and appreciated!
