We are a non-profit therapeutic riding facility. Our volunteers do everything from barn chores (taking care of the horses) to helping out with lessons. You do not need any previous horse experience to volunteer with us, but it is always a plus.

Also, we welcome volunteers to help with office work as well if they are not physically able to do the more hands on tasks with the horses.

Anyone is welcome to volunteer with us at Horses Bring Hope because we are an all inclusive environment.

We ask that all volunteers are able to commit to a minimum of 3 hours per week for at least 3 months.

If you have any additional questions, please email us and we will get back to you very quickly!

Please inquire with full name, email address, why you would like to volunteer with us, and how you heard about us.

Also, please do not show up without having a previous appointment made. In order to have a proper orientation, the volunteer coordinator would like to be prepared in order to do so.
