Therapeutic and Recreational Riding
Lesons are designed to teach more than just horsemanship skills; clients improve their independence, behavioral regulation, and physio-motor skills through safe, interactive activities on horseback. Lesson plans are individualized to fit the needs and goals of each client and designed based on standards from the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH).
There’s nothing more fun than a pony party! Lulu, our resident miniature horse, travels to events, parties, and celebrations to help individuals learn more about our therapeutic riding program and The Light House.
Volunteers assist in a range of responsibilities on the farm including morning and night chores, feeding, side-walking, and leading during lessons, facility upkeep, fundraising, and more. The time spent volunteering at our facility can be used to fulfill community-service requirements, internships, or supervised agriculture hours (SAEs).
Each of our volunteers are required to complete a rigorous training process prior to joining our herd to ensure their safety- as well as the safety of our equines, staff, and clients. Although some volunteers come with equine experience, many do not!
