Courage Rock Stable would not be able to provide its services without the help of our wonderful volunteers. As a volunteer you will receive training in safety, horse handling and grooming, and the skills needed to work with our very special participants or equine partners. We appreciate any and all help, no matter how many hours or what type. 

While many of our volunteers have experience with horses or working with people with special needs, it is by no means a requirement. All of our volunteers, no matter their experience, attend an orientation to familiarize themselves with our safety and operational procedures.   


  • Volunteering during our therapeutic riding and horsemanship classes

  • Organizing or helping with special or fundraising events

  • Serving on our Board of Directors 

  • Serving on our Development, Finance, or Governance Committees

  • Helping with grant writing or fund raising.


We have many events and fundraisers during the year on the farm or off and could always use more volunteers.  Some of our fundraisers include Horsetoberfest Fall Fundraiser which is a community event or helping with the parade during Veterans Day and Christmas.


  • Be at least 14 years of age

  • Have no criminal record 

  • Read the Volunteer Manual before attending Orientation

  • Complete the "New Volunteer Orientation" class prior to volunteering for classes.

  • Be able to work independently without close supervision

  • Be able to walk a minimum of 45 minutes

  • Be able to lift over their heads for side walkers

  • Be tolerate varying temperatures and the dusty barn environment


During Camp Courage, we have eight campers per week of camp who rotate in groups of four between riding instruction and activities so we need at least five volunteers during camp weeks. 


Please email to enroll for a volunteer orientation class or a farm visit. Include your name, your age, and the opportunities your most interested in.


Some students who participate in Therapeion classes will need at least three volunteers as their team.  Depending on the student, they would need a horse handler and two side walkers.  There can be up to four students per class requiring up to 12 volunteers during one hour of session time.
