Many University of Mary Washington students choose to enjoy their downtime volunteering at Hazelwild Farm with the therapeutic riding program. Hazelwild Farm, host of the UMW equestrian team, offers therapeutic horseback riding for people of all ages with physical and mental disabilities. These volunteers donate their time and energy every Tuesday night in order to help these children ride. Many of them have voiced how much they love the program and how worthwhile it is.
