“Making a difference … in my life and theirs”

It’s rewarding for me to see the kids overcome their challenges
— Amy, Volunteer

LTR volunteers are people who give their time and services to benefit our programming. Some bring skills in horsemanship, while others have leadership skills. Some want to reach out to make a difference in the lives of others. ALL are the heart of our programs and their dedication to our mission is the reason LTR thrives!

You are invited to join the community of people who help bring the benefits of horses and related equine activities to those in need.

We are always in need of volunteers to help handle a horse/pony, sidewalk with a student, or help in the barn, so we would love to have you join us!

There are a variety of volunteer opportunities during our Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall sessions.

Here’s how you can help:

 lesson-program  Barn-Buddy

Lesson Programs

Volunteers can assist by walking beside a rider (sidewalking) to offer support as needed, or as a horse leader by handling a horse/pony during a lesson. Horse Leaders must have experience with horses, however sidewalkers do not need prior experience. All lesson program volunteers but must be at least 14 y.o.

Barn Buddy

The Barn Buddy program is vital at LTR. As a Barn Buddy, you will assist with helping care for the horses, which includes but is not limited to feeding, grooming, tacking and mucking stalls. Barn Buddies ensure that the horses are ready for their lessons and prepared for their riders. Barn Buddy volunteers can be under the age of 14 years old with the supervision of a parent. This is a great opportunity to work with the horses if you are not able to help with lessons or if you just love having “barn time”!


Corporate, Community or School Group Volunteering

We welcome groups to help with any number of grounds and building maintenance projects. Past projects have included: painting, fence mending, shed building, trail and field clearing, building picnic tables, gardening, weed-eating, fall and spring cleanup. Projects can be ½ day, full day, or more.

Special Events

Volunteer at Special Events, serve on committees, or assist with production at fundraising events.
