Do you love horses? Enjoy helping others? Want to make a difference in someone's life? Then look no further....
We are actively seeking volunteers to work with our staff to help care for our horses, prepare the horses for lessons, or assist instructors during lessons (by leading the horse or side walking with the rider) as well as a variety of additional barn tasks. You do not need to have any experience with horses to help out! We will provide the necessary training for you to be a growing part of our organization!
We do ask that volunteers commit to a regular schedule so our riders and staff have as much consistency as possible. We will also take substitute volunteers in case someone is unable to make a scheduled time.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center

Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center creates therapeutic programs for individuals with cognitive, physical, emotional, behavioral and psychological needs utilizing the equine experience. At Ivy Hill, Horses + Love = Hope.
What do we offer?
We offer customized horsemanship and therapeutic horseback riding instruction, as well as Hippotherapy (physical therapy utilizing the movement of the horse) to individuals of all ages with cognitive, emotional or physical challenges.
Why are therapeutic riding and hippotherapy benificial?
The interaction between humans and horses has recognizable therapeutic benefits. Many of our riders are referred to Ivy Hill from educators and medical professionals with the goal of achieving specific physical, emotional and cognitive accomplishments. Our specialized programs are designed for the needs of each rider and can facilitate a variety of positive achievements in areas such as physical, cognitive, and emotional.
We'll work with your schedule.
