HIGH HORSES THERAPEUTIC RIDING PROGRAM

Image_202109182059

No experience necessary, training is provided.

High Horses has been serving communities across VT and NH for almost 30 years. It is only because of our dedicated volunteers that our programs are able to change lives. While we have a strong and committed group of volunteers our programs are growing rapidly. This past summer we served a record number of riders and began our first waiting list.

We need new volunteers to join our team and help serve even more of our neighbors and friends.


Volunteering with High Horses is incredibly rewarding as you see a rider's progress through a session. As a volunteer you will regularly hear and see how our programs improve the daily lives of our riders. You will also make new friends, grow personally and professionally, and enjoy great snacks.
