Volunteers are essential to the success of a therapeutic riding program. No previous experience is necessary. Volunteers must be at least 16. No need to worry if you are not comfortable around horses. Our instructors will assign you tasks to match your skill and comfort level and teach you everything you need to know about volunteering for St. Croix Trail Blazers.

Volunteers assist in every area of the organization from fundraising, publicity, maintaining the facility, grooming, and assisting instructors in the arena. If you have grant writing and tracking experience, please let us know.
