River Cities Therapeutic Riding Center Charity Profile

Since 1994, we have served over 250 children and adults with disabilities through equine assisted activities.

RCTRC is a non-profit 501 (c) 3, tax exempt organization, whose mission is to provide equine facilitated therapy and recreational therapy services to children and adults with disabilities. Therapeutic activities are designed to assist people to reach independence, as well as obtain a quality of life with enjoyment, confidence, and self-fulfillment.

River Cities Therapeutic Riding Center Volunteer Information

Dedicated people from all walks of life team up to give riders opportunities and experiences that make differences in their physical, mental, social and emotional well being. Our goal is to provide a volunteer team for each rider so both the riders and volunteers can benefit from continuity and establish a lasting relationship of trust with one another. Moreover, special volunteers will be able to share knowledge, guidance, patience and love with the rider. A professional, safety-conscious environment for our riders, volunteers and horses is also of major importance to us. Volunteers play a key role in achieving this goal.

As a volunteer, you will be part of a professional team. We have a lot of fun, seeing smiles, hearing giggles, and viewing accomplishment first hand. Equine Assisted Activities, done in a professional and safety-conscious manner, brings feelings of boundless joy and accomplishment for all those involved.

During our volunteer training program, typically held in the spring, we provide you with a handbook that has been designed as a reference for your orientation to our center. Topics include:

Volunteer duties; Tips on working with horses and our participants; Safety information are included.

If you are unable to attend our formal volunteer training - we offer you the opportunity to join us after a session has already begun. We hope this information will be of continued benefit to you now and in the future. For those wanting more information about horses, disabilities, or therapeutic riding we encourage you to use our library in the riding center tack room and ask questions.
