Volunteers are needed to help Miles of Smiles Therapeutic Riding Program start its summer session. Miles of Smiles provides recreational horsemanship lessons for people with mental, physical, and emotional disabilities—and it’s more than a pony ride.
New volunteers must attend the training/informational meeting on May 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Training will be held at 901 West Maple, Garden City (1/2 mile west of Main and Maple).
Lessons will run for five weeks, May 28 through June 29. They will be held on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday evenings and Thursday mornings. Volunteers choose the times and days they want.
Experience with horses and/or disabilities is not necessary. Volunteers need to be at least 14 years of age or accompanied by an adult. For more information, call 620-260-9997 or 620-271-4925.
