CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!
Volunteer for New MS Wellness Horsemanship Project!
Equestrian Crossings (EqX) is looking for several committed VOLUNTEERS to help with an exciting new 6-week pilot project using our horses starting in May!
In cooperation with the Swedish Hospital Neuroscience Institute of Seattle Wellness program, our certified instructors will be providing dedicated riding lessons to some of their adult Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. These patients will be taking part in once-weekly adaptive riding lessons in the Greenbank area of beautiful Whidbey Island, in order to experience the unique benefits of equine-assisted activities.
TRAINING PROVIDED! No horsemanship experience needed! Since we will be working with a variety of large and small horses, we need volunteers who are able to help lift and support adult students at the halt and while walking. Some students may need up to 3 volunteers each to assist them. Lesson length is typically 60-90 minutes and will be held during the day on Thursdays.
Contact EQX to sign up for training by April 14th. We have need for volunteers during some of our other lessons as well.
