    Overview

    Pony Power Therapies is a non-profit organization giving special needs and at-risk children and adults a unique opportunity to ride, care for and interact with horses. Our riding and non-riding activities enhance individuals' physical, social and emotional well-being in a safe, nurturing farm environment.

    Side walker: Provides physical support to the rider during a lesson, helping them maintain a balanced position on the horse. Following the instructor’s direction, a side walker will often play an active role in helping riders complete various exercises, such as stretching, counting and reaching.

    Lead walker: Handles the horse during a lesson. Following the instructor’s direction, the lead walker will help, as needed, in steering and maintaining the horse’s speed. Lead walker volunteers should have previous horse experience.

    Farm crew: Maintain our red barn, clean paddocks and goat and pig enclosures. Opportunities are available 7 days a week. Farm crew volunteers are supervised by the facilities manager.
