Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Academy is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Philadelphia, PA dedicated to providing therapeutic horseback riding programs for children and adults with physical, developmental, and intellectual disabilities.
All of our volunteers get to have fun working with both our horses and our riders. During lessons, each rider works with a "team" that includes a horse, a horse handler, and two side-walkers. This is your opportunity to get to know our riders! In addition, volunteers help groom and tack the horses before the lessons start. After lessons, you might also help out feeding the horses and settling them in for the night after a good day's work playing with our riders.
You must be 14 years or older in order to volunteer at Pegasus. All volunteers are required to go through an orientation training session and must have medical insurance.
