Courageous Connections

Do you love helping others, watching positive change happen in people’s lives and sharing meaningful stories? If you answered yes to these questions then this skill-based volunteer opportunity is for you!

Courageous Connections brings humans and horses together to empower participants with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges towards achieving their individual goals. In short, we create magic by bringing people from all backgrounds and walks of life together to experience the healing power of horses.

We have a BIG idea and are looking for help from experienced and knowledgeable equitation judges. We plan to hold a virtual horse show to raise funds and step one is finding judges willing to donate their time and expertise. We estimate between 20-50 participants across all events. This is a first time fund-raising event of this type for us. Judges do not need to be carded but do need appropriate experience and background.

Virtual Horse Show Judges:

  • Judges will help organize the event by:
    • Finalizing Classes, Events & Patterns
    • Providing event details for publication in registration process
  • Judges will review video submissions, judge and score each one providing feedback that can be sent to the participant.
  • Judges do not necessarily have to be carded but do need appropriate experience to perform activities noted

Courageous Connections will provide:

  • The majority of event planning including registration, managing video submissions and payment etc.
  • A tax receipt for and in-kind donation based upon your volunteer hours
  • Recognition Courageous Connections on website as well as social media

If you are ready to learn more or apply please email us directly at volunteer@courageous-connections.org

Mission Statement

To promote the physical and emotional development of people of all ages and abilities through safe, therapeutic, outdoor experiences.


We are excited to have completed our therapeutic riding program for the Summer Session and have now started our Fall Session. We hope to expand our program over the coming months which is dependent on volunteers! One look at the expressions on our riders faces as they work with horses is all volunteers need to see to fully understand the impact and significance of these encounters. The most frequent and compelling feedback we receive from our volunteers is that they get as much out of the experience as the rider does!
No horse experience is required! We serve people of all ages!
