If you are visiting this site, you probably have a love for horses and have spent a lot of time with them! Would you like to apply what you’ve learned, spend time with great people and earn service hours at the same time? Consider volunteering at one of the many Therapeutic Riding Centers in Austin!
These centers are dedicated to helping children and adults increase their independence and build life skills through occupational therapy utilizing horses. Typical volunteer requirements include being at least 15 years old, with a working knowledge of horses and horse safety. Activities in which you may participate include tacking up, grooming and bathing, leading the horse and rider, walking beside the horse and rider, and various barn chores.
If this sounds interesting, take a look at our directory map of stables, and see if there is a therapeutic riding center close to you. Each facility offers volunteer training to insure your safety, and that of the rider.
