The ways YOU can make an impact…
Those 14 years and older may participate in program activities at Mane Stream.
No experience with either horses or individuals with disabilities needed;
we provide our own orientation and training sessions.
Volunteers are needed on a daily basis from Monday to Saturday. Volunteers become part of the Mane Stream team. You will
participate in grooming, tacking the horses prior to lessons, and either leading the horse or sidewalking for our adaptive riding lessons, therapy (OT, PT, Speech-Language) sessions or other equine assisted activities programs. Additional opportunities include helping out with everything from office tasks, barn chores and maintenance.
Your Time Commitment: 3-6 hours weekly during a typical 6-16 week session
You must attend a 2.5 hour Mane Stream orientation and a hands-on training session
which will cover horse behavior, safety, grooming, tacking, sidewalking and leading skills.
