Ready Set Ride
Project Lead:Eric Wellman
Project Description: On May 5th from 1-4pm, Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility assists special needs and terminally ill children by providing horseback riding services. Following Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) guidelines, Ready Set Ride bases its program on developmental techniques utilizing the horses as a means of mobility for the children. Certified therapeutic riding instructors guide the students and closely monitor individual needs to encourage consistent improvement. Therapy is conducted in the form of games on horseback which incorporate physical, speech, occupational, developmental, and recreational therapy. This project needs volunteers to assist with cleaning horse stalls, general stable cleanup and “de-winter-ing”. Also may be clearing a horse trail through the woods. Necessary tools will be onsite, but feel free to bring your favorite rake, shovel, etc. if you wish.
