“Volunteering at Horses for Healing is such a unique experience,” said Executive Director Linda Brown. “Our volunteers get to see so many life-changing moments. We enjoy hearing children say their first words while riding a horse and seeing children take their first steps because of the physical strength, balance, and coordination they gain from riding.
Horses for Healing provides therapeutic riding lessons for children with special needs across the region. HfH has five (5) full time staff and more than 80 active volunteers, who are vital in providing area children with special needs the opportunity to participate.
The training is Thursday, March 13th at the therapeutic riding facility in Bentonville from 9:00-12:00. Horses for Healing is located at 14673 Daniels Road in Bentonville. For more information about the program contact Debbie Studyvin at (479) 795-0570 or visit www.horsesforhealignwa.org.
