About

We are always in need of volunteers who can assist in making sessions successful! Our clients can't have their sessions without you so YOU are important! We have a monthly Volunteer Orientation to acclimate you to our programs and safety procedures. Come out and visit to meet our wonderful herd, volunteers, and clients!

Side Walkers are responsible for the client throughout their session and play a vital role in their success and safety. Training is provided.

Horse Handlers are responsible for the horse during the session and we need more and more every day! We need to have a Horse Handler for each client who attends sessions at HELP. You'll need to have at least 10hrs of Side Walking experience with HELP clients so sign up today to get the process started!
