There are many opportunities and ways to get involved at Dreams On Horseback. Our volunteers are critical to the success of the programs that we run here. Our Therapeutic Riding lessons (TRL) is the program that we are most in need of volunteers for at the moment. In order to achieve our goal in providing therapy through horse riding to individuals with physical, cognitive and behavioral challenges, we need you!
