Dream Riders of Kentucky, Inc. operates almost exclusively with volunteers, which they are actively in search of as the local nonprofit prepares to launch their programs for the year.
“Dream Riders of Kentucky is gearing up to start our 2022 therapeutic riding programs for people of all abilities,” said executive director Sandy Webster. “The Dream Riders programs are supported and made possible due to the kind and generous contributions of time and talents brought by volunteers from Owensboro and surrounding areas.”
The nonprofit strives to enhance participants’ lives that require additional physical, cognitive, emotional, and social supports in a safe and supportive environment. They are a 501c3 and serve more than 90 individuals with disabilities weekly.
“Volunteers are the lifeline of the Dream Riders programs. Our volunteers claim they get more satisfaction and enjoyment from their participation than they could ever give back,” Webster said. “Dream Riders has a unique and special culture of inclusion, caring, and kindness for both the volunteers and the participants who benefit from their experience. No horse experience is necessary; come join in the fun, get in your steps and be part of an incredible group of people.”
There is a volunteer orientation on Jan. 20 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. They will conduct volunteer training on Jan. 22 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
