Volunteer Training

Training sessions throughout the winter, spring, and summer!  We have several General Orientation Sessions and Advanced Training Classes planned.  The Advanced Training Classes are on both sidewalking and horse-handling.  We hope you join our team!

Current Training Class Schedules

We really need feeders for the Winter – do you have two hours to spare, once a week?

Other volunteer opportunities are available in horse care, equine therapy programs, special events & office work.  Learn how to be a part of the team. Call Marie – 860.434.1974 x 118

Other Volunteer Enrichment Opportunities

Volunteers are welcome to join us for our Winter Lecture Series for an introduction to the world of Therapeutic Riding, a refresher or professional development with a wide range of topics from the anatomy of the rider to business organization and fundraising. You may choose to attend one workshop, or receive discounts if you book multiple workshops.

Volunteers may wish to consider additional professional trainings to deepen their understanding of the therapeutic riding environment. We encourage this and some organizations are willing to sponsor their employees who are looking for skills enrichment outside of their normal working environment. Subjects include mentor training, therapy horse, volunteer management and working with veterans.

Training sessions are conducted rain or shine. Please wear sturdy footwear and barn appropriate clothing.
