The nonprofit Horseplay Therapeutic Riding Center, which is affiliated with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, (PATH International), offers a year-round therapeutic recreational horseback-riding program for special needs children and adults. For more information, click on "Enrolling" above.
Riding develops strength and balance, and increases self-esteem, benefiting individuals with conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, Down Syndrome, autism, brain injury or head trauma, visual and and hearing impairments, mental or learning disorders and muscular dystrophy.
We hold volunteer orientations the first Saturday of the month. Please e-mail to sign up and receive a reminder. Thank you!
All sessions are 45 minutes.
The staff members of Horseplay Therapeutic Riding Center wish to express their deep appreciation for the continuing generous financial support provided by the Valero Energy Corporation.
"I started volunteering at Horseplay in 2014 because I was looking for an organization that would help me grow as an individual and a place where I could really help people. I have a cousin who is special needs who goes to a facility very similar, and she inspired me to volunteer." cont'd
