3R Special Equestrians
The Special Equestrian program at Triple R Ranch uses the movement and interaction of a horse to help individuals with physical disabilities. This therapeutic riding program can help participants improve balance, core strength, flexibility, muscle tone, posture, coordination and self-confidence.
Volunteers are an essential part of Special Equestrians. Without them our program cannot run. We need up to three volunteers per participant; a horse handler and two side walkers. Volunteering is more than just donating your time; it is helping people with disabilities achieve things they may have never thought possible before riding a horse. Volunteers do not need any experience working with horses or individuals with disabilities, we will train you to help here. We are always looking for volunteers who are committed and are reliable, willing to learn and be kind and respectful to others. Be part of a fun, positive and rewarding experience.
