Volunteers Are The Backbone to our Program

Volunteers at Pegasus Special Riders, Inc. do more than give their time and energy. They change lives and help special individuals achieve dreams that they never dreamed possible. They make lifelong friends and join a larger community of fun-loving, energetic, individuals passionate about making a difference.

Volunteers assist riders during their weekly lessons, groom horses, help maintain the facility, assist with administrative tasks, and much, much more. If you’re interested in contributing your talents to a great cause, we welcome you to join us!

The essence of our organization exists in our human spirit – the spirit and passion of those that volunteer – and the spirit and determination of those who ride.

Volunteer Opportunities Available:

  • Side walkers with students
  • Horse leaders
  • Horse feeders
  • Handyman
  • Maintenance
  • Grooming horses
  • Saddling horses
  • Volunteer recruitment

There are more opportunities for volunteers than we have volunteers to fill. Please don’t limit yourself to what we have listed. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer we will gladly find something that suits your needs and capabilities.

We are very appreciative of all the assistance that we receive from our volunteers.

They are the ones that help make our organization a success.

About our Riders

Here you will find stories about our riders and our Therapeutic Riding Program and volunteers which improves the quality of life of those we serve.

Our primary clients are individuals with disabilities who benefit physically, emotionally, and cognitively through animal-assisted activities, primarily through interaction with horses.

We encourage all of our students and parents to get involved. There are numerous opportunities to do so and we greatly appreciate your efforts. Pegasus Special Riders operates as a team and we can use your help! As we continue to grow and expand, we will rely on increased support from you and from our community. Your time and involvement is always welcome!
