Over 250 volunteers work with our therapy horses and participants to aid in providing safe, effective and fun lessons.  All lessons are designed to meet the personal goals of our participants – whether they want to focus on improving their physical fitness, cognitive acuity or just to have fun.  Riders may not exceed 200 pounds – this is to preserve the health of the horses and the safety of our volunteers. For those who exceed the weight limit there are several other fun and educational Equine Assisted Learning ground activities available, including barn management, horsemanship and Mini experience.
