Friends for Tomorrow


As a small non-profit organization, the success of Friends For Tomorrow depends on the dedication and support of volunteers.

As a volunteer, you may be involved in the care of the horses and the barn; in assisting children with their riding lessons; in setting up games for lessons; in tack cleaning or in other activities such as event planning and volunteering to make our program run successfully. Volunteer quote I will never forget the smile that lit up her face the first time she mounted her pony. The courage and joy she displayed that day will stay with me forever.

The rewards that come from volunteering are many: working as part of a team to help our riders experience the joy that comes from horseback riding, meeting great people and making new friends, learning new skills, doing something for your community, and feeling good about yourself.

If you love horses and children, enjoy the outdoors and being part of a team and if you are at least 14 years old, we would love to hear from you. Horse knowledge is a bonus, but not a prerequisite to join the Friends For Tomorrow family. We are happy to teach you the skills you need, at a pace that is comfortable for you.
