Horse Handlers and Side Walkers - Volunteers.....Priceless

Dream a Dream Therapeutic Horsemanship

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 25 people are interested

Get much more than you give. Volunteers are the life blood of Dream a Dream. Without our very special volunteers we would not be able to operate. Our volunteers help take care of our horses, insure the safety of our students, and provide assistance in our office.

Volunteers usually come to the farm once weekly for 2-3 hour time slots. Volunteer workshops are held throughout the year to provide initial and ongoing training for all of our volunteers-new or experienced. Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older to participate in THR sessions with clients.

Horse handlers must have prior experience with horse management. It is a perfect opportunity to fulfill community service requirements for schools, religious affiliations or colleges. It is also a wonderful opportunity for individuals looking to pursue careers in occupational/physical/speech therapy, education, psychology, equine industry and medicine.

Our volunteers should be comfortable interacting with children, animals and nature.
