In consideration for the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff, we are carefully offering regular programming, including therapeutic riding, hippotherapy (O.T./ P.T.), equine assisted learning, and counseling this year. Equest’s mental health counselors are currently providing in-person and tele-health counseling to clients.

Volunteering

 

All trained, experienced volunteers on premises must be pre-approved and pre-scheduled by the Director of Volunteer Services. They must have their updated signed release on file, the COVID specific liability release form signed and on file and review the COVID protocol form. They must follow mask and hand washing protocols, and must maintain social distancing.

 

Volunteer training is held prior to each session: Fall, Spring, and Summer.
