Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, make a difference in people's lives and experience an indescribable sense of purpose from serving others. At HRET, volunteers have the opportunity to work with horses as Horse Leaders and the riding participants as Side-walkers. We are also in need of admin volunteers.
