Learning how to handle and care for a horse promotes confidence, patience, self-esteem, and improves social skills. Horseback riding (mounted lessons) help improve flexibility, balance, and muscle tone. Unmounted lessons focus on establishing a working relationship with their therapy horse and to learn life skills that often result in employment opportunities in veterinary clinics and stables. Eagle Mount Adaptive Riding Center is a Premier Accredited Center and our instructors are registered and certified through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH).
Space is limited and sessions, lessons, and day camps will be filled on a rotating basis to ensure that as many riders can join us as possible. Participant assessments will be used to determine what type of lesson would be most beneficial and appropriate for each participant.
Most volunteers serve as sidewalkers or horse leaders. No previous experience is needed. Volunteers are also needed for non-class activities such as tack cleaning, barn help, and special events.
