How to Help

Volunteering at NTRC

Volunteers are an essential part of Northland Therapeutic Riding Center's program, contributing more than 4,000 hours per year. We need you! Experience with horses is not necessary for every volunteer role, as many positions extend beyond the barn. Our volunteer opportunities include but not limited to:

  • Horse leaders
  • Side walkers
  • Grooming and tacking 
  • Fundraising and event planning 
  • Photography

Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older and in good physical condition to serve as horse leaders or sidewalkers. Schedules are flexible and NTRC provides a 2 hour orientation to learn about EAAT, safety procedures, and hands-on experience with our horses.

Steps to begin Volunteering at NTRC:

  2. Submit the Volunteer Application.

  5. Get started! Choose a volunteer shift and confirm with Volunteer coordinator.
