Experienced horse handlers needed to assist our riders with their therapeutic horseback riding lessons

Get Connected Icon ongoing


Join our volunteer team and help our riders experience the joy of horseback riding.  Must have experience handling horses from the ground in a variety of situations.  No experience with individuals with disabilities is required.  Come and find out why many of our volunteers come back week after week, year after year - they say it's as therapeutic for them as it is for our riders!  Volunteers must be physically fit as the position entails walking and some jogging in a sand based arena.  

Orientations are held in March and August each year.  Pre-registration and a background check is required.  Email to request information about signing up to attend an orientation.


Get Connected Icon Volunteers should be between the ages of 16 and 120.
