Become a Volunteer
Volunteers are the backbone of our program!
Without volunteers, our program would not be possible.
Each rider begins with one Horse Handler and two Side Walkers.
Help as a Side Walker
Side Walkers walk alongside participants as they ride. The purpose of a Side Walker is to help keep the rider safe and assist their participation.
Become a Horse Handler
Horse Handlers guide horses while clients ride by leading or long-lining. A Horse Handler grooms, tacks and handles the horse during the therapy session or adaptive riding lesson.
Serve on the Facility Crew
Facility Crew members help maintain our nearly 6-acre ranch! Responsibilities can include but are not limited to, cleaning our building, weeding, maintaining fences, ranch repairs, etc.
Join the Equine Crew
Equine Crew volunteers may help with turning-out horses, preparing horse lunches, feeding, manure pick-up, etc. Horse experience required.
Volunteering at Kids & Horses is fun and rewarding!
