Volunteer

We need volunteers to service as horse leaders and side walkers. Experience with horses is a definite plus, but special skills are not required. We will show you how you can help!

All volunteers are asked to attend a workshop to review our program and safety issues. There will be workshops scheduled prior to program session start dates (call for scheduling). There is no age limit but we would prefer at least 13 years of age.

Volunteering with Liberty Riders is an amazing and life-changing experience. Each rider communicates a passion and pleasure in riding, though often she cannot express such feelings verbally. A smile and interest in the horse proves each individual’s mental and physical involvement in the program. The horses are not merely animals, but friends. Riders love the horses and call them “their horses”. One girl told me that riding was her birthday present and with a wide grin on her face said, “I love my horse.”

As a volunteer, it may take two lessons or ten, but you see the progress of riders with which you form a bond. Verbal and mental skills increase and a wider range of physical movements are possible in and out of the saddle. Each time I drive out to the barn to help with the therapeutic riding program, I cannot help but wonder what new physical and mental feats will be conquered. I feel grateful for the abilities I have and the chance to share with others the thrill of riding.
