Volunteers are the critical to the success of the Therapeion program. Each volunteer is trained to work directly with participants.
Volunteers give moral and physical support to riders and enjoy the personal satisfaction of seeing each individual's progress from week to week.
While many of Therepeion’s volunteers are "horse-people", horse experience is not necessary to volunteer. What is truly important is a desire to help and a willingness to learn. Everything else will follow. If you feel called to help please contact us to enroll in a volunteer training class. We ask that all volunteers that work directly with the riders be 18 or older. However, there are many opportunities for younger volunteer to assist.
A necessary part of running a therapeutic riding center is finding funding. If you wish to host a fundraising event, make a donation, or wish to help in any way to keep this program financially solvent please contact the center director. Libby will be happy to discuss your ideas or answer any questions.

Therapeion was founded to provide equine assisted programs for person with disabilities, youth at risk, and children who have been abused or neglected.
Therapeutic riding, which originated in Europe, has been actively helping individuals with disabilities since the 1950's. Therapeutic riding uses equine-oriented activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well being of people with disabilities and emotional issues.
Therapeion's purpose is to assist our participants in dealing with or overcoming their physical, emotional, behavioral, or cognitive issues and do it with an attitude of respect, compassion, concern, and love.
Join us as we continue our mission. The contribution of your time, energy, or financial assistance will help us continue to provide our services and to be able to expand our programing to serve more individuals.
