Agape Therapeutic Riding Resources, a therapeutic equine nonprofit with locations in Cicero, Greenfield and Martinsville, will reopen its Agape East location in Greenfield on July 13 after closing in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Agape’s Greenfield location will offer limited services initially for up to 36 participants, according to Stephanie Amick, executive director of Agape.
“We will open cautiously to ensure the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff, and hope to be able to serve all of our new and returning riders by the end of August,” said Amick.
Agape East will begin offering its Discovery Camp and therapeutic riding lessons on July 13. Discovery Camps are unforgettable days of horseback riding, crafts, and other outdoor activities for school age kids of all abilities. Four daylong Discovery Camps are planned during July. In addition, Therapeutic Riding lessons will be offered, providing mounted horseback riding lessons to assist in the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with disabilities.
Agape is looking for volunteers to assist with lessons, to take care of horses, and to help maintain the barns and trails. A volunteer orientation is scheduled for Saturday, July 11, at the North Cicero location, and another is being planned for August at the Greenfield location.
