Here at New Heights, we are dedicated to helping those with physical, cognitive, and emotional difficulties reach their full potential. We would not be able to achieve this goal without the help of our volunteers.

Volunteers are required to groom and tack up the horse before the lesson as well as assisting in lessons.
