Volunteers play a major role in the success of our programs at Challenge Unlimited at Ironstone Farm! They assist instructors with therapeutic riding lessons by offering support and guidance to our clients and/or leading the horse during the lesson. Bonding with clients and watching their growth is extremely rewarding!

Volunteers are needed Monday-Friday during the morning, afternoon, and early evenings, and Saturdays between 9:30 am - 2:00 pm. We are interested in all who are willing to give us some of their time in exchange for a fun and rewarding experience!

The minimum age to volunteer is 13 years old. No horse experience is needed! Interested individuals need to submit a volunteer application, which we will email to all Volunteer Match inquiries.
