Freedom Ride’s dedicated volunteer team is the backbone of our organization. You do not need to have horse experience, but you need to feel comfortable with horses and be able to complete tasks independently. There are many areas in which volunteer assistance is appreciated: participating during classes as a side walker or a horse handler, providing horse care, grounds maintenance, Special Olympics, special events and other duties may be assigned. Freedom Ride needs volunteer assistance 7 days a week and operates both mornings and afternoons.
