Seeking volunteers!

We are always looking for new volunteers to add to our tremendous family of helpers!  If you are age 14 or older, interested in horses and helping people, we're a great fit! 

Horse leaders are responsible for the horse, tacking up and leading the horse and rider around the ring. Sidewalkers walk next to the rider during the lesson, providing support as needed.

Lessons are offered Monday-Thursday and Saturdays at various times throughout the day and evening. We ask volunteers to commit to a weekly schedule for a 4 or 6 week period.  All volunteers are required to attend training and orientation.

Please call 716-655-1335 or email for more information today!
