Volunteers are at the heart of our program. We make strides because of your passion and hard work! Whether you've been a life-long horseperson or artist or have little to no experience, we can use your help!

Riding Lessons

Volunteers are most needed for lessons, as we require 2 side walkers and 1 leader (3 volunteers!) per horse.

Art Lessons

Help brighten someone's day! As a volunteer art teacher you will conceive of and/or lead fun art projects with our participants. 

Barn Hands

Learn what it really means to bond with a horse! Our barn hands water, hay and groom horses as well as mucking stalls and paddocks and cleaning the barn generally.

Event Planning and Fundraising

We always need help planning fundraising events. Please see our Special Events section for upcoming events, and don't hesitate to contact us with great fundraising ideas!

Other Skills

If you would like to contribute in any other way, please let us know! Special skills such as photography, videography and carpentry are especially needed!
