Ready, Set, Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility Charity Profile
Since 2001, Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility has been assisting special needs or terminally ill children by providing horseback riding services. Located in Plainfield Illinois, students as young as three years of age come from all over the Chicagoland area. It is the goal of Ready Set Ride to assist these children in achieving the highest quality of life possible through the use of horses and individualized activities focused on the needs of the student. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to participate in therapy sessions. Volunteers are also an integral part of the therapy sessions at Ready Set Ride.
Ready, Set, Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility Volunteer Information
Ready Set Ride volunteers are an integral part of the therapy sessions. We make every effort to ensure each volunteer is welcomed and allowed to expand their interests. If you love horses or love kids, this is the perfect opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children with disabilities like Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age, and no prior equine experience is required. Adult volunteers are especially in need.
Volunteers have an easy time becoming acquainted at the barn due to a wonderful staff eager to show you the ropes. Volunteering can be done individually or by groups. For groups efforts, we provide daily tasks and/or small projects. There's no shortage of chores, so please let us know what interests you'd like to pursue.
