Improving the lives of individuals with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities

Horses, like other animals, can provide unique beneficial experiences for people with a range of disabilities from deafness to brain injuries and down syndrome. Students enjoy building relationships with the animals, learning to care for them, and challenging themselves physically on horse back.

Through the Pioneer Valley Therapeutic Riding Association, and organizations like Mercy Hospital’s Weldon Center for Rehabilitation, Lisl has been actively involved with therapeutic riding for decades. She hosts groups and individuals at the farm or other facilities with equally safe, reliable horses, and invites community members to participate as volunteers.

Contact Lisl for information about getting involved as a student or volunteer.
