The Problem

Supporting a Therapeutic Riding Program in our community by volunteering to be “side-walkers” for young people living with disability participating in the program. Some of the riders have mobility challenges, are neuro-divergent, or may have emotional/developmental considerations.

Our Plan

While a local program exists at Sky Blue Equestrian Center for people to engage in therapeutic riding, volunteers are required to be additional “eyes on” by walking alongside the rider on the horse. Members of NatureConnect 365- Hudson Highland Roots & Shoots group have committed to volunteer over 8 Saturday mornings from April 2023 - June 2023.
