Eagles' Wings Stable to Hold Volunteer Training Orientation March 25
Provided by Eagles' Wings Stable, Inc.
PIQUA - Eagles' Wings Stable, Inc. works with children and adults with special needs and provides them with the opportunity to experience therapeutic horseback riding as an alternative therapy to improve their brain and body development. Our students make remarkable improvements in their balance, core strength, speech, and cognitive development because of the support they receive from the seventy-some volunteers that come to the Stable each week. Even though our volunteers are of all ages and experience levels, they have one thing in common - they give with their whole hearts, and they make meaningful connections with our riders – they are operating at the intersection of joy and need.
Our Next Volunteer Training Orientation is at 9:00 a.m., on March 25, 2023, at Eagles’ Wings Stable, 5730 N. Washington Road, Piqua, OH. Here is a list of our volunteer needs - volunteers must be at least 14 years old, unless a waiver is granted by our Volunteer Coordinator:
Barn Buddies – Each volunteer helps one day per week by cleaning two to three stalls. They provide fresh water for the horses and sweep the center aisle. This is typically a two-hour commitment per week.
Arena Volunteers – Arena volunteers either lead a horse or walk beside the horse to support the rider. Class sessions run for eight weeks. This is a 1-hour commitment per week for eight weeks.
Other Volunteer Opportunities - Taking photos of our horses and riders and telling our riders’ and volunteers’ stories through journals. This commitment can vary.
If you cannot commit to a regular schedule, we are always looking for substitutes in all areas if you are interested in helping on an as-needed basis.
