Help out at the Dream Catcher of Los Angeles Horse Riding Therapy facililty.

Dream Catcher of Los Angeles is one of many local organizations that focus on horse therapy. The riding center works with children, adults and veterans with cognitive, physical and emotional disabilities, using equine therapy to improve the mind, body and spirit. You do not need to have any experience with horses to help out. They will provide the necessary training for you to be a growing part of our organization. Volunteers are needed in a variety of capacities, from providing horse lessons, caring for the horses,assisting in the comfort and safety of the rider, walking beside the rider, providing physical support as needed, reinforcing the instructor's directions and being alert to the possible need for instantaneous help, fundraising and organizational tasks. They ask that you try and commit to volunteering on a regular basis so their riders and staff have as much consistency as possible. Sign up form:
