To Volunteer

Our program could not survive without our devoted volunteers. These people, ranging from teenagers to retirees, receive extensive training and enjoy a multitude of opportunities within the program, including side-walkers, horse leaders, and barn support.

Due West TRC holds new volunteer training sessions at Due West Ranch. These are Saturday or Sunday sessions, lasting approximately 2 hours.

Our next training session:

STAY TUNED! It's in the works!

If you would like to attend one of these sessions, please contact our Volunteer Services Director, Kim Buckner, to reserve your spot as these sessions fill up quickly.

You will also need to request from her and complete all paperwork in advance of the session.
