T.H.R.I.L. Therapeutic Horse Riding looking for volunteers

By Lindsay Advocate

T.H.R.I.L’s aim is to provide quality certified instruction and therapy on horseback at minimal cost to the participants.

Volunteers are urgently needed to prepare for Therapeutic Horse Riding In Lindsay’s (T.H.R.I.L) spring riding program.

Those interested in volunteering will learn how to groom, tack, and lead the therapy horses, as well as walk beside the riders, according to a media release.

More than six years ago, the farm opened just minutes from downtown Lindsay to offer a therapeutic riding program for children youth and adults with special needs.

T.H.R.I.L is a non-profit registered charitable organization that aims to improve the quality of life for mentally and physically challenged youth and adults by providing equine therapy by certified instructors. Riders experience the joy and thrill of being on a trained therapy horse, while working on their balance, strength and coordination, and improving their self-confidence, self-esteem, processing, communication and socialization skills.

T.H.R.I.L’s aim is to provide quality certified instruction and therapy on horseback at minimal cost to the participants, with the assistance of donations, discounts and volunteers from the community.

Registration is almost full for the spring program running in April through June. A summer program is being finalized for July and August. Contact Kelly Russell, T.H.R.I.L. instructor at  for more information and to become a volunteer.
