Volunteering is fun!!! Especially when horses and people with challenges are involved. No horse experience needed, just the desire to help change the lives of those living with emotional, behavioral, and physical challenges.
We walk a lot in the arena and outside on the Sensory Trails. Activities take place in the Salem area (just south of Enchanted Forest).
Everyone over the age of 14 can volunteer. Children ages 12-14 can volunteer with a parent or guardian over age 18. This is a also great volunteer opportunity for seniors, groups or teams of employees. We value and appreciate everyone's input, assistance and support of our organization.
