8.26.2020 Update

Phase 2 begins 8.31.2020!

Our new policies & practice prioritize protecting the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and staff. While thingS may look a bit different, we remain committed to providing high-quality equine-assisted activities and therapies. The ROL reopening task force has developed a plan for slow re-introduction of the on-site activities. Riders and volunteers will be invited back in stages depending on the developed criteria.
