Volunteers are the HEART of VARHA
If you love putting a smile on someone’s face, enjoy being around horses, and like to walk (your exercise can benefit others, too!), please join us and become a VARHA Volunteer. Volunteer times vary, with daytime and evening hours available throughout the week. We suggest observing a class and then attending an organized training session. Our greatest need is for “side-walkers.” Side-walkers are critical to our program and no horse experience is necessary.
VARHA depends highly on volunteers to assist with our classes. Many of our riders require two to three volunteers during each class. Each class session has four to six riders and is one to two hours in length.
On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, we run two, one-hour therapeutic horseback riding classes and one cart class. On Monday and Wednesday evenings, we run a variety of programs and classes. We also have daytime volunteer opportunities during the summer months.
In addition, we need volunteers to assist with barn cleaning, facility and grounds maintenance, and office work.

Become a part of something wonderful!
Because of you…I can accomplish more,
I feel I have wings and I can soar.
Because of you… I can reach so far,
I think I can almost touch the stars.
Because of you… I sit taller than I have
ever sat before and I can see beyond
my wildest dreams. I can see over the
mountains and across the wind blown
fields. Because of you…I laugh and I
have joy. Because of you…I know that I
can do even more.
YOU are my volunteer… I am your
Because of you…it is all possible.
