Learning how to handle and care for a horse promotes confidence, patience, self-esteem, and improves social skills. Horseback riding helps improve flexibility, balance, and muscle tone. Unmounted lessons focus on establishing a working relationship with a horse. Eagle Mount’s Adaptive Horsemanship instructors and program are certified through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Int).
Lessons are held for one hour, once a week in four week sessions year round. Participant assessments will be used to determine what type of lesson would be most beneficial and appropriate for each participant. Assessments are held most Mondays between 3p and 5p, please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a half hour appointment once all paperwork has been completed. Space is limited and filled on a rotating basis.
Most volunteers serve as leaders and sidewalkers in lessons. Volunteer commitment is approximately one and one half hours per week for each four week session. Volunteers are also needed for barn chores and facility maintenance. No experience is necessary, training is held prior to volunteering.
