2018 Volunteer Training
Saturday, March 17th or Saturday March 24th
10:00 a.m.—12:00 Noon
Volunteers are the backbone of our therapeutic riding program.
Our trained volunteers help provide a safe and effective experience while enhancing the quality and enjoyment of the lessons. Rising Hope Farms is maintained completely by volunteers. The number of riders that RHF can serve is determined by the amount of volunteers we have. Because of the commitment of the volunteers, RHF can offer therapy riding free of charge. Rising Hope Farms has volunteering opportunities for everyone:
Horse Handling/Care Rider Assistant
Barn/Arena/Ground Maintenance
