Here you will find a complete Participant Application Packet, as well as instructions for enrollment into our Program. You will need to fully complete this packet and then contact our Participant Coordinator, Julie to schedule a visit to our farm. Once your visit has been held and all forms have been submitted, Julie will put you in the schedule.
During site visits/evaluations, we will need to ensure that our program is appropriate for you, and that there are no contraindications to you or your child’s participation. At this time we will discuss our services and how we can best meet your needs. Following the evaluation and the determination that we can safely accommodate you, you will be eligible to register for the next riding session.
We strive to provide the safest possible conditions for participants, volunteers and employees. Horses of Hope, Inc. adhere to all the precautions and contraindications by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH). The acceptance, and continued participation of a rider in our program depends on the availability of instructors, volunteers and suitable horses. HoH retains the right to refuse any participant that we cannot safely accommodate.
