Volunteer Opportunities


Program Volunteers
Minimum Age: 14
Pegasus is always looking for program volunteers! These volunteers assist with our lessons. We use volunteers as sidewalkers. Sidewalkers walk next to our riders with disabilities and provide physical and/or emotional support. We also use volunteers to lead the horses. No prior experience with horses or disabilities is required to be a volunteer. Pegasus will provide the necessary training for the job. We use volunteers weekday evenings, Wednesday and Thursday mornings and Saturday and Sunday.
