Equest is welcoming volunteers to prepare horses for class (groom and tack), lead horses or sidewalk during class. You must be 14 or older and able to walk for 45 minutes in a sand arena. No horse experience required. We have a training program. Sessions are Thursday nights and Saturday mornings.
Few things are more rewarding than sharing a Special Rider's joy. Won't you help? A few volunteered hours a month will make a huge difference in a Special Rider's life.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Equest Special Riders, Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote physical and mental strength and coordination as well as self-esteem and enjoyment through horseback riding activities for individuals with disabilities
Horseback riding develops self-confidence and coordination and strengthens muscles. Attention span increases and self-esteem is elevated. And besides, it's fun. During their lessons, riders receive instruction in basic horsemanship as well as specialized activities for their individual disabilities. The ages, as well as the type of disabilities, of the riders vary. All riders must have their physician complete forms stating that the student is physically able to participate in the program prior to beginning the program.
Equest is member of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Tiding, International. Our riding instructor are PATH Certified.
We'll work with your schedule.
