About

We Can Ride is always looking for great volunteers to help us. Volunteers help in our therapeutic riding lessons and hippotherapy as sidewalkers, leaders, and barn aides. Volunteers are also used to feed the horses, maintain the barn, help at special events, fundraisers, committees and office tasks.

Our lessons are 5-8 weeks long and go from January through October every year. We have lessons every day of the week except Friday with evening, daytime, and weekend times available.

You do not need to have any experience working with people with disabilities and special needs or horses. We provide training to all volunteers so that you get the training you need to do your role confidently.

Looking to learn more about horses? We offer workshops and trainings throughout the year, free of cost, to all of our volunteers to give back to you. It is a great way to learn more in an open and nonjudgemental environment.
