EquiCenter is a volunteer-based non-profit organization. Opportunities for involvement include working with horses and participants during our lesson programs, helping with horticultural activities, facility and barn support, fundraising, special events committees and administrative support. Whatever your interest and talent, it can be put to good use at the EquiCenter!
Our volunteers generously lend their time and skills in many invaluable ways:
Riding Lesson Volunteers: Assist during therapeutic horseback riding lessons as a side-walker or horse leader. Volunteers interested in working in our lesson program are required to sign on for a minimum commitment of one session volunteering at least one hour per week for that session. Lesson volunteers must be physically able to participate in lessons which are in the indoor arena as well as outside on trails.
Barn Volunteers: Assist with grooming and saddling horses for lessons. Provide help with horse-care related needs such as cleaning stalls, clean and replenish shavings in horse sheds, clean water troughs, and general barn responsibilities.
Gardening Crew: Help preserve our perennial gardens that add to the beautiful & peaceful setting for program participants.
Maintenance Volunteers: Assist with light-carpentry, repairing fences, grooming trails, and maintaining landscaped areas.
Office Volunteers: Assist with needs such as newsletter production, photocopying, office organization, making phone calls, and graphic design.
Special Event Volunteers: serve on a committee to help plan our fundraising events or work as a volunteer on the day of an event.
Volunteers assisting with riding lessons, barn activities & facility maintenance are required to attend a volunteer training session.
