Savannah Station relies on a gifted group of volunteers to make the magic happen and to keep the program operational and free of charge to our riders. Our trained volunteers provide the support and guidance necessary for both horse and rider.
Volunteers are the backbone of our program. They are our greatest source of support and a priceless resource. The program could not function without them.
Our volunteers dedicate their time and energy to the fulfillment of our mission to provide Hope and Healing with Horses. Savannah Station volunteers are caring and compassionate and have a passion for helping each individual rider achieve their highest goals of independence while providing the best support during their equine therapy sessions.
The minimum requirements to volunteer are to be 14 years of age or older, complete Volunteer Orientation, and be ready to make a difference!
In the arena where horse and rider become one, every lesson is taught by a certified instructor. Most every rider starts out with a three-person volunteer support team. This team is made up of a horse leader who is responsible for guiding and caring for the horse and two side-walkers, one on either side of the rider, with the responsibility of steadying, protecting and encouraging the rider.
Outside of the arena, there are many other valuable ways volunteers help Savannah Station help our riders. Volunteers help with event planning, fundraising and horse care just to name a few. If you have a passion for this program we need you!
Savannah Station holds volunteer orientation prior to each new riding semester; Spring, Summer and Fall. Every volunteer will be fully trained and equipped to perform their assigned work. No experience with horses or with special needs is required.

I have so enjoyed being a volunteer for over seven years and have seen first-hand the amazing impact of this program. I really consider it more of a ministry on all levels. The horse's are God's gift and remarkable animals that can relate to all people students and caretakers. I love being a part of something that works. At Savannah Station little miracles happen all the time.
