Volunteer Your Time and Talent

At NDR, our participants are the heart of our program and our volunteers are the heartbeat.

NDR Therapeutic Riding's mission is to provide equine-assisted activities that are focused on providing people with disabilities/limitations the unique opportunity to enhance their physical, social, and emotional abilities.

Our volunteers help with grooming and handling horses, setting up and cleaning up for sessions, side walking during sessions, helping kids and families around the ranch, helping with events, and for activities for our nonprofit organization.

We have volunteers of all different backgrounds and with different interests. Whether you are interested in horse handling, physical therapy, occupational therapy,  ranch management, or just having some fun making a difference  we need your help! The minimum age requirement is 13 years old. Adult volunteers will be background checked upon registration.

We are happy to sign off on community service hours for school requirements, college entrance, physical/occupational therapy school applications, etc. We also provide letters of reference for job/school applications upon completion of 30 hours.

Our volunteers donate their time and talent rewarding all at NDR with strength and hope.

Get involved with us and make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities/limitations.

Sue Quick Legacy Scholarship Fund

Sue Quick, a member of the NDR Therapeutic Riding team, passed away on Monday, October 21, 2019. In 2015, she teamed up with NDR as a PATH certified Instructor providing therapeutic adaptive riding to those with disabilities/limitations. The impact that Sue had on all she met was truly immeasurable. She was an instructor, a mentor, a friend, and a true team player. Most importantly, she was a role model for the power of positive thinking, perseverance, and tenacity of spirit. Her smile and laugh were contagious! Sue left an indelible mark on our hearts. In her honor, NDR has established the Sue Quick Memorial Scholarship Fund to help offset lesson costs for all we serve.
