Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

In this volunteer program in Chile, you can combine your passion for horses with charity work. You will work with people, animals and get to spend plenty of time in the fresh air. Additionally, you will gain valuable insight into the special treatment of horse therapy. This therapy is a method that appeals to multiple senses of the patient on different levels and leads to quicker therapy results. The goal is to train the coordination, orientation, and sense of balance of the patient. On horseback, physical tension is removed, allowing for different treatment to be introduced.

The horse therapy center in Santiago de Chile works particularly with younger patients suffering from Down syndrome, autism, or other developmental disabilities. The therapy stimulates unutilized senses and helps the patients to develop new sensations and capabilities in their bodies.

As volunteer in Chile you will assist and care for disabled people (especially children) who participate in therapy sessions on horseback. In addition, you support the maintenance and preparation of the horses. They have a very important task during the therapy sessions! For this type of volunteer work, there is no previous experience required, but you should be a sensitive, patient and responsible individual. It is also a great advantage if you know about the treatment and care of horses.

Your activities as a volunteer in Chile may vary. The duties may include:
• Support the therapists in therapy sessions
• Therapeutic leading of horses (kinesiology – muscle therapy)
• Entertaining young patients
• Maintenance of the facilities and stall cleaning
• Preparation of animals for therapy sessions
The exact program and task description will be sent to you after successful placement and before booking, that you can be sure to know exactly where you will work and live, before your trip to Chile starts.
