Whether you are able to devote one hour or ten hours per week, your time and energy will always be greatly appreciated.
Assistance is needed in all aspects of our program.
Lesson Volunteers are the backbone of our program and have the option of arriving early to assist in preparing horses for lessons (grooming and tacking), and then leading horses or side walking riders during class.
Office Volunteers provide support by assisting with the phone inquiries, data entry, filing, mailings and other general office duties.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the application process work?
All prospective volunteers must submit an application. Thereafter, volunteers are required to attend an orientation/training session prior to beginning their volunteer work. This insures that volunteers understand our mission and their responsibilities.
Do you have to be a specific age to volunteer?
Volunteers must be 14 or older to participate in our Therapeutic Riding Program. You also must be able to walk for about an hour and occasionally jog during that time.
Do I need to have horse experience?
No! No horse experience is required.
What do program volunteers do?
Program volunteers help groom & tack, lead or sidewalk horses and put horses away when class is over.
My schedule is erratic; do I need to commit to specific hours every week?
Volunteers serve an important role in fulfilling our mission. All volunteers are needed and the students depend on them. For this reason, it is important that volunteers report to their assignment when scheduled and on time.
Can my group volunteer?
Members of community groups and corporate teams are welcome to volunteer on a regular or one-time basis.
