The UNH Therapeutic Riding Program provides recreational and therapeutic
activities to children and adults with various physical, mental
and emotional disabilities. Volunteers have direct contact with
students, helping to ensure a safe and fun lesson environment, and
helping students achieve their therapeutic and educational goals.
No prior experience with horses is necessary. Time commitment for
volunteers is flexible, and can be as little as 45 minutes, one
day per week.
