Interested in volunteering to support our therapeutic riding programs?

Anyone over the age of 14 with any level of experience is welcome. Younger volunteers may work around the barn and horses only with adult approval and supervision. We will teach all the basics of therapeutic horsemanship, please be ready to learn a new way of doing things! We can’t teach someone who thinks they already know.

Volunteers participate in various capacities ranging from the actual therapeutic riding activities, to administrative tasks and projects and corporate or club group projects. Many of our therapeutic riding clients need one or more side walkers - without assistance, they can't ride. There are always things to be done and people to lend your support, encouragement and companionship to.

Dream Power's volunteers are vita to making our mission a reality. We literally can't do what we do without them.
