Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
SidewalkerMinimum Age: 14Volunteers needed to walk next to horse to assist riders with disabilities in therapeutic riding lessons. Volunteers may physically support riders or act as a coach. All sidewalkers must go through orientation/training, and be committed to coming at least 1 hour per week regularly during business hours (typically 9am-5pm-occasional evenings or Saturdays possible).

Volunteers must have previous experience with horses (ownership, riding lessons, previous volunteer experience, etc), and must complete horse handler training at Hearts & Hooves.

Office/Paper SuppliesPaper supplies are a constant need for us.

Donations are tax-deductible, and always appreciated!
Australian Stock Saddle Or Endurance SaddleNeeded in good shape for use in therapeutic riding lessons. We are hoping for a larger seat size to accommodate adults who need a more supportive saddle, without a horn. Donations are tax deductible!
GravelFor re-graveling drive and parking lot. Also looking for a finer gravel to fill cracks in sidewalks to make sure the way is smooth for walkers and wheelchairs.
