VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME

 

Our volunteers are the heart of HOPE. Their dedication, enthusiasm and commitment make it possible to serve more people. We are thankful for each and every person!

While some of our volunteers have experience with horses or working with people with special needs, it is by no means a requirement. All of our volunteers, no matter their experience, attend an orientation and receive training to familiarize themselves with our safety and operational procedures.

 

Below is a list of opportunities where volunteers can get involved.

Wranglers 

Unbridled HOPE Wranglers work with mentors assisting sessions providing extra help and support during preparation, tacking, may work as horse handlers or side-walkers, provide verbal encouragement and/or physical support to the participant throughout sessions.

Equine Care Volunteers help with feeding, cleaning stalls, cleaning paddocks, grooming, play with horses, and help with overall horse care and handling.

PLAN A WORK DAY!

Projects at the ranch… We need you!

 

Do you have a group or organization wanting to plan a work day?

We can always utilize volunteers who are able to come out to the barn and help us with many kinds of projects- from construction of fences and property maintenance to building trails and decorating the barn, we would love to have you come on out and lend a hand.

 

We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. This is an easy and efficient way of contributing to the great work we do at Finding HOPE Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc.
