Equine therapy classes prepare for new season
MISSISSIPPI STATE -- The Mississippi State University Extension Service’s 4-H therapeutic riding program is taking applications for riders and volunteers.
The spring session will run each Tuesday from March 25 through April 29, and classes are conducted at the Mississippi Horse Park. Rider applications and volunteer information forms can be found at the MSUcares.com Web site. Volunteer training is March 18.
In addition to the program’s regular classes, MSU is adding a class called “Horses for Heroes,” which targets veterans who have returned from military service with disabilities.
Mississippi State 4-H TEAM, or Therapeutic Equine Activity Member, is nationally accredited by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association through the Premier Accredited Center Program.
