Volunteer Training


For New Volunteers

Your training begins by watching the 30-minute video (YouTube link) to learn about therapeutic riding, the children and adults we serve, and the horses that help us. We will be reviewing highlights of the Volunteer Handbook but please read it in full yourself.  We will also be sharing information about the most common diagnoses/disabilities of our participants and how to best support them to achieve their goals.

After watching the video, then contact us to be scheduled for the in-person training that includes hands-on experience with our horses.

Please review our updated policy: 2023 COVID Protocol Document

Complete the Volunteer Application and bring it with you to the in-person volunteer training. Also visit our Volunteer page for additional resources.

The video below explains some of the benefits of volunteering.

We look forward to welcoming you to the RVR team!
