Our volunteers are an indispensable part of HorseAbility.

The bond that forms between our riders and volunteers who lead the horse and walk beside the rider is something you can experience even if you have never worked with horses before. Whether it is working with our students and horses, working around the barn or helping in the office, there is something here for everyone! Come join our team!

“There’s nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.”

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS

HorseAbility welcomes volunteers aged 13 and up. Volunteers serve a wide range of functions for the organization, such as fundraising, horse and stable care, and assisting with therapeutic riding and hippotherapy sessions.
Volunteers are the cornerstone of our programs. Horse knowledge and experience is not a necessity. Volunteers are needed to assist with horse care, barn chores, lessons, treatment sessions, camp, outreach, fundraising, office work, and facility maintenance. We offer a training program for all new volunteers that is both educational and comprehensive. Proper horse-handling techniques and safety precautions are emphasized. Staff and senior volunteers will work with you to give you the tools and skills you need to be a successful volunteer.
