How to Apply

Hello and thank you for reaching out to us here at the Flying Horse Foundation!

Here is a little more information on our program and what a volunteer's role is:

  • We seek to bring hope and healing to foster and adoptive children, as well as those who have suffered trauma and abuse.  
  • Our program provides a free two hour session each week, with small groups of peers who learn about boundaries, empathy, communication, and confidence as they care for, interact with, and eventually learn to ride horses. Currently, our program serves over 100 children. 
  • We are seeking volunteers over 21 years of age to work with our students in session by following the facilitator's lead, keeping students safe around horses, listening to and encouraging them along the way.  
  • We ask volunteers to commit to 2-3 hours per week

If this interests you, please send us an email to begin our volunteer process. 

Sincerely,


Lisa Ringdahl
