About Us Riders Volunteers News & Events Programs Opportunities To Help

igh Horses' volunteers have a significant and immediate impact on the quality of the service that we provide for our clients.

Volunteers groom and tack up horses, lead them during lessons, or walk alongside them in the ring and out on the trails. They interact with our riders either in casual conversation or to assist them with specific instructions from our instructors.

Our goal is to enrich the lives of our volunteers and add to the quality of the service we provide. In the words of one of our volunteers, "It is one endeavor where you know you are making a difference; yet it is not clear whose life is more positively impacted, the rider's or my own."

Working in the ring with constant hands-on contact with our horses and their special-needs riders requires specific skills. Volunteers in the ring must be at least 14 years old and are screened and trained under the guidelines of Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Int’l). We sponsor several volunteer training sessions each year. All volunteers must fill out the Volunteer Application Form. View our Volunteer Manual for in-depth descriptions of volunteer opportunities at High Horses.

We have opportunities to help even if you prefer not to work in the ring or around our horses. Please contact us to learn about other ways you can help us.

Please go to the Contact Us section for information about how to become a volunteer.
