Have you already attended a general orientation training at High Hopes? If not, click here to sign up for our General Orientation and Sidewalker Training.

All volunteers must attend a General Orientation prior to volunteering.  At the General Orientation, volunteers will choose a role(s) they are interested in and will be scheduled for an additional training specific to that role. Roles may include sidewalker, horse leader (experience required), feeder, office volunteer, etc.

For those with horse experience interested in becoming horse leaders, this session provides additional training and opportunities will be available to learn and practice our leading techniques.

If you are interested in expanding your volunteer activities at High Hopes to include Horse Leaders or other more advanced horse handling, please contact Marie Manero 860.434.1974 x 118.
