This week on Helping Hand, it’s Therapeutic Horsemanship of Hawaii. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Executive Director Dana Vennen ahead of their Horse Show & Country Fair fundraiser tomorrow in Waimanalo. According to their website, Therapeutic Horsemanship of Hawaii’s specializes in riding instruction for special needs individuals, but provides therapeutic riding to individuals of any ability, and offer community outreach with miniature horses they bring to individuals who cannot visit their program, due to physical or financial reasons.
Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing statewide on HPR1 stations as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then appearing online here, where all of our Helping Hand segments and resources are archived. Fridays Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and others among the most vulnerable.
