Volunteers help us Shine!

As a Volunteer, you’ll gain tremendous satisfaction from assisting the participants in their progress as they enjoy physical, emotional, and cognitive contact with the horses. Horse experience is not necessary. If you are interested in helping with our riding session, you are invited to come to one training each year.

There are so many ways to volunteer outside of classes. Individuals, groups, companies or families can volunteer for one day projects or on a regular basis. Help in the barn, with property maintenance such as mowing, special events or join our fundraising team.

General Volunteer training will be held at the indoor arena
3185 York Rd • Gettysburg PA, 17325

Trainings are held three times throughout the year, prior to Spring, Summer and Fall riding sessions. You will have an opportunity to attend a training before every riding session. Clearances and volunteer applications do not need to be completed in order to attend a training.

Upcoming Volunteer Training Dates: February 13th, 15th, and 19th at the arena.
