STAR Equestrian Center serves abled and challenged riders in many types of equine activities. STAR is accredited through Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) and is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) operating center. As a full spectrum equine learning facility, our vision is to serve children and adults of all cognitive, physical, and social abilities. We strive to enhance quality of life by attending to the mind, body and spirit of each rider, volunteer and participant.
Volunteers are the heart of STAR Equestrian Center! Without their dedication, loyalty and hard work, it would not be possible for us to fulfill our mission. While some of our volunteers have experience with horses or working with people with special needs, it is by no means a requirement. All of our volunteers, no matter their experience, attend an orientation to familiarize themselves with our safety and operational procedures. STAR Equestrian Center offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities, some of which require horse experience, but many do not.
