Description

Equestrian Bridges’ is a 501c3 not-for-profit located in Fayetteville. Equestrian Bridges is dedicated to building connections that empower Northwest Arkansas families.


Dream Catchers is a social skills program that takes place in 8 weekly sessions. Within Dream Catchers we facilitate Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT). Clients learn to relate to their peers and work alongside our therapy horses through this powerful, proven program. Groups are carefully assembled by function and age. Each group typically consist of 4-6 clients so individual care can be provided. Equestrian Bridges’ Program Director will design activities that lay the foundation for higher-level academic and communication skills.


For this 8 week program, we need committed volunteers beginning  You will be assigned to serve as a buddy for the same child each week (there are times we adjust who you are paired with if a last minute need arises but we do our best to pair you with the same child every week so that relationship can be built). We also need substitutes so if you cannot commit to the full 8 weeks and you are willing to fill-in if someone cannot make it, that would be so appreciated! You can sign up for one or more of these days/times. We look forward to seeing you! 
Reminder: You will need to attend a volunteer orientation if you have never volunteered or if you have not attended an orientation in two years. The dates for orientation are Session Days/Times:

  • Monday 4:30pm-5:30pm Child/Teen Session

  • Monday 5:30pm-6:30pm Child/Teen Session

  • Monday 6:30pm-7:30pm Child/Teen Session
  • Wednesday 4:30-5:30pm Child/Teen Session
