At CTRC, volunteers truly make the world go round. We serve anywhere from 170 to over 200 riders each week. Each of those riders requires one to three volunteers – so clearly, with out the hard work and dedication of our volunteers the "CTRC world" would stop spinning!

CTRC has one of the largest volunteer programs in our area, with over 1,000 volunteers providing invaluable help in a broad range of areas each year. We train volunteers to groom and tack horses, lead horses, and walk along-side participants, helping to support and stabilize them. Volunteers also participate in caring for and schooling horses; maintaining our facility; helping with numerous administrative tasks; and assisting with special events and fundraisers.

CTRC volunteers can learn about disabilities, develop or hone horse handling skills and learn about the power of the human-animal bond. We also offer the opportunity to increase physical fitness and to enjoy the social benefits of volunteering.

When you volunteer at CTRC you have the opportunity to become an important part of the lives of our phenomenal riders. For many of our riders, their time with their volunteers and their horse is the most significant part of their week. By volunteering with us you are helping to ensure that our riders will continue to benefit from the life enriching power and potential of therapeutic riding.

CTRC offers site-visits and trainings for new program volunteers through out the year.
