Kent Special Riding Program is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing high quality therapeutic and recreational horseback riding instruction to physically, mentally and emotionally challenged individuals in Kent and surrounding counties.
KSRP, a nonprofit, volunteer reliant program has made this special experience available to well in excess of 9,000 student participants since they started in 1976. Although KSRP employs trained instructors and aides to oversee the program, volunteers make the difference. They will typically act as horse leaders and sidewalkers to help with balance for the student. More importantly, they bring care, concern, enthusiasm and love to the experience for our riders. Program volunteers are asked to work for two hours, once a week, during a six-week session. Daytime, evening, weekday and Saturday classes are available.
