Do you love horses and kids? Kids & Horses may be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! Kids & Horses sessions are only a half-hour long Sunday-Thursdays, 9am-5pm. Volunteers can give as little as an hour on a session day or a whole day and can serve on a consistent schedule or be on-call to backup other volunteers. Kids & Horses is looking for side-walkers and horse handlers to help in sessions ensuring the safety of the student riding. All side-walkers are trained and observe two sessions before they are asked to volunteer for a session. Those who are interested in becoming horse handlers receive additional training. Please email or call Kids & Horses with questions or interest in volunteering at or call us at 775.267.1775. Find directions to us at: Kids & Horses has a dedicated group of more than 100 volunteers who serve as horse handlers, side walkers, equine caretakers, and supporters of the organization - many of whom have worked with Kids & Horses for years.
