Are you ready to join us?

Volunteers are critical to the success of CHAPS Equine Assisted Therapy and a priceless part of the therapeutic team for therapeutic riding, learning, driving and more. Several times throughout the year, CHAPS offers training to acquaint prospective volunteers with the various duties and needs we have for the program.

Session Volunteers
Horse leaders and side walkers provide support for riders who are not yet independent riders. By leading a horse or side-walking (similar to a spotter in gymnastics), you are making a difference for a person with special needs who would not be able to participate without your help!

Horse Help
Helping keep our facility and stable clean and welcoming for our participants and equine staff. Feeding, turn out, cleaning stalls and more are important jobs that keep our riding center clean, safe and professional.

Facility help
Facility volunteers join us for facility clean-up such as cleaning up debris in the pastures, burning slash piles, painting, fixing fence, spraying weeds, mowing grass and running the weed whacker. 

Committee Members
Not a horse person? You can still contribute in a variety of ways with the governance of the organization on a number of committees that sustain CHAPS and help the staff provide superior service.  CHAPS is currently seeking additional board members.

Volunteer Coordinator
A vital position that assists Instructors and the Director in scheduling and training volunteers for all of our needs.

Feedbag Staff
Reporters and graphic design people who can work under a deadline and produce a monthly e-newsletter for our community to share our success stories and provide education about our services.
