Do you want to take part in lessons at Hands and Hearts? We serve individuals with special needs aged 4+ in southwest Georgia and north Florida. Lessons run Monday through Saturday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Please contact Hands and Hearts staff for more information on enrollment.
Do you want to participte but not sure if you can afford the riding fee? We do not want to let anyone be turned down due to financial constraints. Please fill out the form below and submit it to the staff for consideration. After looking at your request, a staff member will notify you about the extent to which you will be able to recieve a scholarship from Hands and Hearts. Please note: until you are approved for a level of scholarship, you will be responsible for the entire cost of each riding lesson.
As a non-profit, volunteers are the backbone of the Hands and Hearts program. Without volunteers, most of our participants would not get the chance to ride. Not into working with horses? Not a problem, there are many and varying opportunities both on and off the farm for our volunteers to get involved in. So what are you waiting for?! Come on and join us in making a difference in someone's life!
Along with our volunteers, our horses are an integral part of how we make an impact in the lives of others. All of our horses are donated and are screened for their temperament, suitability, and ability to handle the requirements of the program during a three-month trial period to determine if Hands and Hearts is the right place for them. Think your equine friend might be suitable for the program? Fill out the attached form, and send it to us today!
For more information about any of the above opportunities, please contact Frances.
