Volunteer Opportunities

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service to others"

Mahatma Gandhi

We couldn't agree more.  Our volunteers are the core that makes Summit Equestrian Center run.  Whether you are a horse enthusiast looking for a place to full your pony fix, a people-person whom thrives watching people soar past their vision of what is possible, or looking to find your role and give back to the community, we have a job for you!  Read about our volunteer roles below, fill out our paperwork and contact us about what we could do together. 


Help with our lesson program

Our Adaptive Riding program could not happen without our volunteers.  We often need a horse leader to help get the horse ready for the lesson and a sidewalker (or two) to help our riders stay balanced and on task.  It is so rewarding to develop relationships with each rider and their family and see the progress made with the help of a horse. 

We then take those skills to our shows and your help as support staff becomes critical to help our riders really strut their stuff for family and friends.  It's a wonderful opportunity to invest yourself for the growth of another, all while having a great time

Our riding lessons are on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays so we have lots of after work and school opportunities to get involved.

Get involved in our special events

We host all kids of fun events to support our barn community.  Our horse shows in the summer not only provide a chance for our riders to strut their stuff & show their families and friends what they've been learning in lessons, but they also serve to help us raise funding to be able to provide scholarships for lessons.  Our volunteers help with the planning, set-up, show day, clean up & everywhere in between.  Let us know where your interest & talent could help & we'll be grateful to find a place for you in our crew!

Jump in & help with projects around the barn

Keeping a horse barn in good condition is not a job for the faint of heart!  We are grateful for the help from countless school, church and work groups, scout troops and teams that have come to our aid to make our facility safe and beautiful.  We have all size projects on our list and would be happy to help you put your group's time, energy and talent to work.
