Due Date: 2025-10-03T21:00:00.000Z
To improve the lives of children, adults, and veterans with cognitive, physical, and emotional disabilities through the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding and other equine-assisted activities, while serving the therapeutic riding profession through training, education and research. Description Therapeutic riding is a unique combination of sport, recreation, and education. There are many benefits to therapeutic riding for individuals with cognitive, physical, or psychological disabilities. All students gain confidence by mastering riding skills. Therapeutic riding focuses on forming a partnership with the horse. The horse's gait closely emulates that of the human gait and allows the brain to practice correct walking movement patterns. Horses are very social animals. Social interactions are developed between the horse, therapist, instructors, volunteers, and other students. Volunteers are an essential part of all our programs. DCLA volunteers willingly give their time, energy, support and hearts to those in need. We embrace all those who volunteer with the greatest of appreciation. They don’t get paid because they are all priceless! We are actively seeking volunteers to help with lessons, horse care, fundraising, and other organizational tasks. You do not need to have any experience with horses to help out. We will provide the necessary training for you to be a growing part of our organization. We ask that you try and commit to volunteering on a regular basis so our riders and staff have as much consistency as possible. If you want to apply as a volunteer, please, go to page Our website is, contact email is, contact phone is 310-350-1311
