About

Come work with horses, in our Non-Profit to help children and join a fun community of caring people. Every Saturday 10am - 2pm.

In this era of "nature deficit" , giving people a chance to experience nature, bond with healthy animals, learn true trust and discover their strengths, is truly the ultimate gift of a lifetime. All training provided.

Leave a Trail provides 1/2 hour horse back riding sessions to children with special needs. We need help with basic horse grooming prior to the classes (no experience necessary, volunteers will receive instruction) and we need 'side-walkers'. Side-Walkers walk along-side the horse while the child is riding, providing support and encouragement, and following the lead of the instructor who is leading the lesson.


Volunteer your time to:

  • Assist with special needs riding classes, by side-walking or leading horses.
  • Assist with Leave a Trail administrative and office tasks.
  • Help organize fundraising and outreach events.
