March 22, 2011 · Updated 10:38 AM
Equestrian Crossings will hold a spring session Thursday, April 21, through June 10.
Equestrian Crossings, a nonprofit equine-assisted activities program, offers more than simply riding lessons. Certified instructors Miriam Burk and Emily Brink offer classes on in-hand ground work, sport riding (English and Western), hippotherapy (physical therapy using the horse to facilitate movement or other goals) and vaulting (gymnastics and dance on horseback) to all persons, including those with special needs.
ADA-accessible lessons are located in Greenbank at the Reinshadow Ridge Arena on Thursdays and at the Hastie Lake Arena in Oak Harbor on Fridays. Space is limited, make reservations by Wednesday, April 6. Applications are available online at www.equestriancrossings.com.
For those who love to assist others, being an EqX Volunteer is the ultimate reward. No experience is needed to help improve the quality of life for children and adults of all ages and abilities. Spring volunteer training is scheduled for Thursday, April 14, in Greenbank and on Friday, April 15, in Oak Harbor.
For information about lessons, scholarship applications (donations to help fund scholarships are always accepted) or becoming a volunteer call 360-320-1573 or email to email@example.com.
