Volunteering is an integral part of the INTRA program. We rely on our volunteers as the foundation of our classes and without their help; many would be unable to ride.

Some of our disabled riders require a leader and two side walkers to help them remain balanced during the lesson.
Volunteers can fulfill both roles; the leader keeps the horse at a safe and even pace while the side walkers help by either supporting the rider or assisting the instructor.

By volunteering, you can learn about people with disabilities, horses and make new friends. You will be filled with personal satisfaction as you see riders enjoy contact with horses physically, mentally and emotionally. You will be giving back to your community while having fun.

Some of our volunteers take on additional responsibilities, such as assisting in stable management and equine care.

These volunteers have ample opportunity to adopt a horse during their stay with us, and enjoy weekly riding lessons.

Volunteers must be over the age of 16 years to help in a therapeutic riding lesson.
