Flying Manes Therapeutic Riding is committed to providing the therapeutic benefits of horseback riding and other equine-assisted activities to individuals faced with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges.  Equine assisted activities and therapies are centered on the interaction between horse and human and use the tolerance and power of the horse to motivate participants to develop their full potential.

Led by a NARHA-certified instructor and supported by dedicated volunteers, our program activities are aimed at teaching participants horsemanship skills and encouraging them to accomplish their physical, emotional, and social goals.

Prior to volunteering with Flying Manes, volunteers attend a mandatory orientation and training session that provides an insight into the benefits of therapeutic riding as well as the purpose, structure, and policies of Flying Manes. Volunteers are provided with hands-on training for horse leading, sidewalking, and other volunteer responsibilities during orientation. Volunteers also receive the Flying Manes Volunteer Manual that contains detailed volunteer guidelines, safety policies, and a description of their responsibilities.
