Volunteer Opportunities Video

To learn more about becoming a volunteer, contact Angela at volunteer@3gaits.org

Therapeutic horseback riding uses:

  • the warmth and movement of the horse to stretch and strengthen muscles
  • the motivation that comes with a fun activity to encourage concentration and decision-making
  • the relationship with the horse and volunteers to improve communication skills and boost self-esteem in children and adults with disabilities

Volunteers help riders by:

  • leading horses or walking beside riders during lessons to give encouragement or physical support if needed.
  • you don't need any special experience with horses or people with special needs,
    we'll train you!

Volunteers have as much fun as riders when they:

  • commit to one or two classes per week for a session (twelve weeks)
  • participate in weekday, evening or Saturday morning classes
  • carpool with other volunteers
  • fulfill volunteer hour requirements for academic programs

We also rely on volunteers for:

  • Lawn mowing and weed eating - all of the mowing is done on a riding lawnmower, get a tan and help us out!
  • Sprucing up - planting flowers, painting and cleaning
  • Special events - Horse shows, fundraising events, etc.
  • Hay - help us out for a few hours putting up our hay
