Our Services

Healing HOOVES is a horseback riding program for children and adults with and without disabilities. With the help of the program’s horses of all shapes, sizes, and breeds, individuals learn about the care, handling, and riding of horses. 

Healing PAAWS is a portable animal-assisted therapy program.  Dogs, cats, and rabbits visit people in the community. Our therapy crew makes regular visits to many different nursing homes in the Burlington / Greensboro area of North Carolina.

Camp FreeSpirit is a half-day summer day camp designed for children ages 2 and up. Campers learn about the care and handling of horses, as well as horse sense and safety. By the end of the week, they have learned how to groom, tack, and ride!

Volunteers Needed!  Kopper Top is a volunteer-run organization.  We depend heavily on the help and support of dedicated individuals who are committed to giving of themselves to our program — to the people we serve and the animals that help carry out our programs.
