Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. We could not provide the services that we do, week after week, without their commitment and passion for CTRH and its mission. Consider joining us and becoming a volunteer today!

We have regular weekly volunteer opportunities that offer different experiences.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Side Walkers provide emotional, educational, and physical support for riders in our hippotherapy and adaptive recreational riding programs.

Prior to volunteering as a Horse Leader, one must first serve as a Side Walker.  Horse leaders are responsible for preparing horses for class, which includes grooming and tacking. During class, leaders are charged with the safe leading of therapy horses.
