Healing Hoof Steps offers two distinct therapeutic programs using horse to help improve the lives of our community. Our PATH Inter. Therapeutic Riding Program utilizes volunteers to assist in many aspects of our program, from helping in lessons to caring for our horses. It is made up of Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors who offer a mix of educational activities on horseback for those with physical, emotional and/or developmental disabilities or limitations.
Aside from our horses, volunteers truly are the backbone of our program - our work would not be possible without your time and dedication.
Benefits of volunteering:

Please consider joining Healing Hoof Step’s exceptional team of volunteers! Whether you can offer an hour a week or several hours every day, there is never a shortage of volunteer opportunities– even when lessons are not in progress. We welcome individuals aged 14 and older, work groups, families, and participants in community service programs. Experience with horses is not required! Transportation must be onsite for volunteers that do not drive themselves.
