Ways to Volunteer

Special Equestrians would not be able to function without the help of over 200 volunteers each year! These amazing individuals serve Special Equestrians in a variety of different ways. Program volunteers, which are the largest group, consist of sidewalkers and horse handlers who directly assist riders during their therapeutic riding or hippotherapy sessions. Specially trained volunteers are also utilized to help care for the program's horses on our Horse Care Team. 

Running a therapeutic riding program takes a village! If you would like to know more about joining our volunteer family, see our application page!

We utilize volunteers to assist with our major fundraisers throughout the year! You can join a planning committee or participate at the event itself!
