Ball Toss Volunteers are an integral part of the Hippotherapy treatment team. The volunteer staff consists of a horse leader and one to two side walkers for each client.

Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, but all of our volunteers are trained by Great Strides to keep the Hippotherapy environment safe and fun.

Volunteers are also critical outside the riding ring! They help us with horse care, stable work, office work, running errands and other projects as needed.

Are you interested in volunteering with Great Strides? No child or horse experience is needed (although we love to hear about any experience you have in these areas)! We do all of our own training here at the barn, and we can find a volunteer function that interests you. Contact Liz at for more info!
