Upon receipt of the completed forms, our intake therapist will review the applicant’s package to determine if our hippotherapy or therapeutic riding program would benefit the applicant.
An assessment appointment (necessary for ALL applicants) will be scheduled only if there is a mutually agreed upon weekly session time available. If an opening is not available, the applicant will be placed on a wait list.
Volunteers form the backbone of our program and are integral to the success of Greenlock. Each week over forty volunteers coming from various parts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island assist on a regular basis in the daily sessions at Greenlock. Volunteers include adults as well as college, high school, and home schooled students. Many church, civic minded organizations, scout troops, and groups from corporations have assisted with various projects at the farm.
