In the whole world horse therapy is now known as an efficient rehabilitation measure for people with mental, physical or emotional disabilities. The main task is to improve coordination, orientation and balance. The horseback riding and the movements of the horses stimulate the production of the alpha waves. With their help, patients can relax better and physical and mental disorders / disabilities can be specifically treated. Furthermore, they release endorphins, which in turn supports a person's well-being and good mood.
The volunteers are primarily responsible for the care of the horses. These must be slatted, fed and brought to the paddock. Also, the volunteers are responsible for preparing the horses for the daily therapy sessions, that is, to saddle and bridle the horses. During the therapy sessions, the volunteers help guide the horses and support the therapists in their work.
In addition to these important tasks, there are general tasks such as cleaning and maintaining the facility, watering the riding arena, watering flowers and minor repairs.
