Born 2 Be is a PATH Premier Accredited therapetuic equestrian center dedicated to providing a hopeful, helpful and healthy environment to enhance the lives of people with disabilities and to encourage all those involved in becoming all they were born to be through the means of horseback riding and other equine-related activities.

The accomplishments we see at Born 2 Be cannot happen without our dedicated group of volunteers. Volunteers need to be 14 years of age. Horse experience is not necessarily required.

Volunteers assist in our weekly classes serving as horse leaders or sidewalkers. Summer classes are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings. We also have a variety of one day projects and events that could benefit from volunteer assistance. Volunteers are also needed to serve on the Board of Directors or on working committees (i.e. fundraising, newsletter, marketing).
