Special needs horseback riding program relocates, seeks volunteers

Horses for Healing, which offers therapeutic riding sessions for people with special need, has moved.

The program restarted earlier this week after relocating to Center Stage Productions riding center in Auburn.

Horseback riding helps increase the riders’ physical fitness and self-esteem. Horses for Healing is seeking donations to sponsor riders for $30 per week. Donations can be made through payroll deduction using United Way ID number 11099.

Winter hours for the program are Tuesday from 2 to 5 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to noon at the center, located at 13355 Bell Brook Dr.

The organization is also seeking volunteers to assist riders. Prospective volunteers should call Gail Guberman at (530) 878-7114 for information and attend the next volunteer workshop, set for March 2 from 3 to 5 p.m.
