MESA Therapeutic Horsemanship Volunteer Training available
March 15, 2018
MESA Therapeutic Horsemanship is seeking new volunteers and offering training for volunteers for their programs. Training sessions are being offered starting today, March 15th and into April.
MESA, which stands for "Mind, Energy, Spirit and Attitude." is a private, non-profit organization that creates programs that provide horse-assisted activities and therapies to individuals with a wide range of physical, mental, behavioral, and emotional disabling challenges in Sublette County. They strive to promote self-esteem, confidence, physical independence and social interaction by using activities and therapies using horses through therapeutic riding activities. Participants ride on a weekly basis during lesson sessions. The sessions are aimed at helping individuals increase strength, flexibility, balance, improve motor skills, promote speech and cognitive reasoning, learn life skills, and build relationships and social skills. MESA has programs in Pinedale and Big Piney, Wyoming.
The training is free and participants are welcome to drop in. If you are interested in helping or becoming a volunteer for this special program or have a person you think might benefit from this kind of equine thereapy, the folks at MESA would love to meet you and answer any questions you might have. It's okay to just show up, but they would appreciate an advance RSVP to Carla Sullivan, Executive Director, at 307-749-3979 to let her know you wish to attend the training session.
