The Ohio Therapeutic Horsemanship Program: Hope, Healing & Horses will be having an informational meet and greet session from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Saturday March 2 at the Mt.Orab Library.

During this session attendees will have the opportunity to explore how our equine friend, the horse, can bring about many positive changes in the lives of the children, ages 5 – 18 that the program serves.

Positive development on many levels includes, but is not limited to, physical, psychological, cognitive, social and emotional benefits.

Some participants have discovered through the program an improved self- image, greater confidence, and gone on to take leadership roles in their communities.

Students, parents and volunteers will be available to answer questions and to offer testimony as to the program’s success. A DVD of an actual session will be played. Light refreshments will be served. There is no charge to attend this meeting. Volunteer opportunities: The program, a 501c3 non-profit is staffed by volunteers with a heart for kids and horses. There are many volunteer opportunities available. It is not necessary that you own a horse to volunteer.
