Become a Rider

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an inpincible summer.Albert Camus

SCHEDULES

Sessions are scheduled Monday through Saturday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Primary and backup volunteers are recruited for each session, so there are options to meet everyone’s time availability. We provide services year round, with occasional needs for weather related cancellations expected.  Participants are not limited to a set short session block of time.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Contact us if you or your child are interested in participating in one of our services. A certified instructor will discuss the options available to meet your needs. Once a plan of action has been decided upon, intake forms found HERE will need to be downloaded and completed prior to the first session. There are some medical conditions that would prevent some people from participating, which is why a ROTR therapist evaluates all candidates and works with attending physicians.

At the first session, an evaluation will be completed by a Physical Therapist or Certified Riding Instructor. Goals and Plan activities will be established at this visit.

RHYTHM OF THE REIN SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Vision statement
It is part of Rhythm of the Rein’s overall mission to provide services to participants regardless of their (or their family’s) ability to pay for those services. Where there are state and federal programs or health insurance programs, we look to them first to fund these services. Where no such funding exists, we strive to fulfill this philosophy through rider scholarships. Monies for scholarships are provided by public and private donations, fund raising events and any grant monies that we receive.

Our Board of Directors has responsibility to our donors to insure scholarship monies are well managed and appropriately spent; therefore it is our policy that our Scholarship Committee will review all requests for financial aid via the Financial Aid Application Scholarships are provided on a financial NEED basis and on a first come first serve basis until all scholarship monies are allocated or spent. Awards are received as credit to sessions.

Before applying for a scholarship please speak to a member of our staff to make sure all other funding options have been explored. All applicants must complete the ENTIRE APPLICATION and submit proof of financial eligibility (copy of most recent federal or state tax return, SSI or Disability check). All information provided will be held in strictest confidence, according to Rhythm of the Rein’s Privacy Statement.

  • Scholarships are awarded for a 12 session block of sessions.
  • Rhythm of the Rein reserves the right to rescind scholarship awards as it sees fit.
  • Rhythm of the Rein reserves the right to waive specific requirements on a case-by case basis.
