Access Equestrian is seeking kind and caring volunteers to assist in our programs.
Help is needed in our adaptive riding lessons for school aged children and adults with developmental disabilities.

We run lessons Tuesday through Sunday throughout the day. Currently our greatest need is for Volunteers on Sundays.

Volunteer’s duties vary according to the particular program, but include everything from horse care to assisting as side-walkers and horse handlers in lessons, as well as mentoring adults and children with special needs. Different opportunities are available Tuesday through Sunday.

The efforts of our incredible volunteers make our programs possible. All volunteers will receive orientation training before joining our program.
