Volunteer Application:

Thank you for your interest in working  or volunteering for Pegasus Springs Therapeutic Riding Center!

It takes a community of heartfelt people with the willingness to give of their time to support a non-profit organization such as Pegasus Springs.  With so many people needing the healing services we provide, it takes three times that in dedicated volunteers.   Minimum age is 14 years, and you must be physically able to carry out the tasks of almost everything we need help with, including your ability to lift up to 50#, such as saddles and hay bales; walk/jog in a sand-filled arena, among other duties. 




Due to the nature of the services we provide to children and adults with physical, emotional or cognitive disabilities, we require a background check before you can work/volunteer with us.  CLICK HERE TO PRINT a copy of Central Registry Clearance Request form to complete  for your background check.  You can mail it back to us, or bring it out to the center.
