SMART Volunteers help our riders have fun while staying focused and engaged in the learning activities during lessons.


"Empowering lives through the healing power of horses." That's what we do at SMART!

Each day we strive to improve the quality of the lives of our SMART Riders and their families through therapeutic horseback riding, carriage driving and equine assisted activities. Through respectful partnerships with our horses, we create an environment that promotes a life of inclusion, respect, growth and independence.

As a mostly volunteer powered organization, it takes a lot of caring hearts and souls to keep our riders growing, learning and reaching for the stars. Volunteers are needed to assist with lessons by providing support and assistance to the riders, leading horses, sidewalking with riders, grooming and caring for the horses before and after lessons, and helping out with barn chores.

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to our SMART Family! If you would love being part of a fun team made up of extraordinary human beings...that empowers nearly 600 children and adults each year---join us! The rewards you will receive in the smiles and giggles from our riders will fill your heart to the top!
