Yay! We are so excited that you have found your way to our volunteer applications. Can you picture it now? It's a warm spring day and you are helping a young child find her confidence, getting exercise, spending time outside, and communing with horses -- all in one afternoon! That sounds like a DREAM! This is the joy of volunteering at Strides. Like many non-profits, we thrive (and survive) on our amazing volunteers, and we need YOU to ensure continued support of our riders and horses.
All applicants: our volunteer coordinator will reach out to you by a phone call within 7 to 10 business days of receiving your completed application.
