Dear Volunteer Applicant,
Thank you for your interest in Hooves of Hope Equestrian Center, Inc. The mission of Hooves of Hope is to provide children and adults, with diverse needs, a solid foundation for developing life skills through equine-assisted activities and therapies in a safe and caring environment.
Hooves of Hope not only provides hope and happiness to our riders, but we seek to inspire volunteers as well. Due to the generosity, care, and hard work of our volunteers we are able to change lives and provide many forms of equine-assisted activities and therapy (EAAT) to the individuals we serve.
However you decide to get involved with Hooves of Hope, we hope that you will experience the wonderful bond between horse and participant. There is nothing better than hearing a participant speak their first words while on horseback, or watching a smile come across their face with a nudge of a horse’s soft nose. At Hooves of Hope, obstacles are overcome daily and we welcome you to be part of changing lives with us.
