Volunteer Opportunities


Therapeutic Riding Center - Volunteers Needed
HETRA is a therapeutic riding program offering equine assisted activities to adults and children with disabilities. We are looking for volunteers to be a sidewalker, groomer or horse leader. We have two locations one in Omaha and one in Valley. Our sessions are run in the late afternoon and evening and on the weekends. Call us to get specific times that volunteers are needed. If you love horses or just want to make a difference in someone's life contact us today!

Wish List Items


Sponsor A HETRA Horse!
Without the trained horses, our program could not exist. Costs associated with horse care continue to increase, but our equine partners continue to receive the very best care. Horse sponsorships are a generous way to offset these substantial expenses to keep our fees low for riders. www.hetra.org for sponsorship information.
