With their help, anything is possible!
Volunteers are the cornerstone of our organization. With their help, anything is possible. We train volunteers to groom and tack horses, lead horses, and walk along-side participants, helping to support and stabilize them. Volunteers also participate in caring for and training horses; maintaining our facility; helping with organizational matters and marketing; and assisting with special events and fundraisers.
To be a volunteer with Cadence requires the simple convergence of compassion and dedication to our Mission to help others. Volunteers with experience working with horses are invaluable. However, if you have that aforementioned compassion, the Cadence leadership team will provide the training you need to work with our horses and clients.
When you volunteer at Cadence, you not only enhance the lives of our phenomenal clients, but your life becomes enriched as well. Our volunteers enjoy the social benefits of volunteering and experience physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. For many of our clients and volunteers, their time together with the horses is the most significant part of their week. By volunteering with us, you are enriching your life and helping to ensure that our clients will continue to benefit from the healing and teaching powers of our horses and equine assisted activities.
The benefits for volunteers not only include training that can be used over a lifetime, there is also free rider training time in our large arena. Cadence president, Ron Tyner, is highly experienced in training horses and riders and will be teaching any volunteers who want to improve their own skills with horses.
Many schools offer credit to students for their volunteer efforts with a non-profit organization. Cadence will not only provide invaluable training to these young volunteers, we will also make sure that the required credits are obtained.
