Looking for ordinary people to do EXTRAORDINARY things!

Volunteer Orientation is September 23, 2023!!  


Volunteers are the heart and soul of non-profit equine therapy. They are the ones who make it possible for these programs to exist and provide much-needed services to people of all ages and abilities.

Volunteers provide a variety of services at non-profit equine therapy centers, including:

  • Side-walking during therapy sessions
  • Leading horses during therapy sessions
  • Grooming and caring for horses
  • Maintaining the facility
  • Raising funds
  • Organizing events

Volunteers also provide emotional support to participants and their families. They are often the first people to greet participants when they arrive at the center, and they provide encouragement and support throughout the therapy process.

The work of volunteers is essential to the success of non-profit equine therapy programs. Without their dedication and hard work, these programs would not be able to provide the valuable services they do.

If you are interested in volunteering at a non-profit therapeutic horseback riding center, I encourage you to contact your local center and see how you can help. Your time and talents will be greatly appreciated!

Here are some additional benefits of volunteering at a non-profit equine therapy center:

  • You will have the opportunity to learn about equine therapy and its benefits.
  • You will get to meet and work with horses, which can be a rewarding experience.
  • You will make a difference in the lives of people who are struggling with physical, emotional, or cognitive challenges.
  • You will gain valuable skills and experience that you can use in other areas of your life.

If you are looking for a way to give back to your community and make a difference in the lives of others, volunteering at a non-profit equine therapy center is a great option. I encourage you to check it out!
