We need your help!

We are looking for friendly, dedicated people to help with our programs. Many positions are available and no horse experience is necessary! Your participation helps us fulfill our mission — to connect all individuals with the powerful benefits of therapeutic riding and equine activities. With the recent addition of Therapeutic Riding, our need is even greater to help riders who would otherwise be unable to engage in equestrian activities. You can play an important role in assisting them achieve their goals while building self-confidence and independence. It's a fulfilling, fun, weekly 'horse fix' and great exercise!

Our staff and volunteers work together, forming a vital team that is essential to our ongoing success. Individual reasons for volunteering may differ, but giving of oneself and forming special connections with people and horses create a common bond with everyone involved in our program. Whether your experience with horses is life-long or minimal, your willingness to give yourself and your time is what we need.

Special thanks to All The amazing volunteers who help us on a very regular basis...  THANK YOU!

Without our volunteers’ hard work and dedication, we would not be able to fulfill our mission — to connect all individuals with the powerful benefits of therapeutic riding and equine activities.

As we grow, volunteer opportunities continue to increase. Words can't express our gratitude to all the exceptional folks who give their time and expertise in a myriad of ways — from assisting during programs, helping with events, horse care, mucking and cleaning stalls, feeding the horses, offering professional services, fundraising and more.
