Little Britches Therapeutic Riding in Roxbury is seeking volunteers for its summer program, which will run June 18 through July 28.
A volunteer training session will be held June 9 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Tophet Road farm.
Little Britches is a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic riding and equine-assisted activities to individuals with disabilities.
Volunteers will assist the riders working as side walkers or horse leaders during the six-week program.
Experience with horses is not necessary.
Volunteer opportunities are available on weekday afternoons and Saturdays at the Roxbury location.
