Each miraculous step our students make would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our trained volunteers. MANE volunteers lead horses during lessons, walk on either side of horses as students ride, groom and care for horses, garden, help with fund-raisers, assist with administrative duties, and do site maintenance. Whether you can offer us an hour a week of your time, or several hours every day, there are many volunteer opportunities – even if lessons are not in progress.

Please consider becoming a volunteer. It’s not necessary that you have experience with horses – only that you not be afraid of them. MANE volunteers must be at least 14 years old and will undergo comprehensive training to ensure the safety and privacy of all of our students. Our volunteers should also enjoy working with people who have special needs or they should have a desire to learn to work with this population.
