TROtt is made even more special by the wonderful people who donate their time every week. Whether it’s working with our amazing students, our wonderful horses or maintaining the property and doing chores, our volunteers work tirelessly to ensure everyone who comes to TROtt feels welcome and celebrated.

TROtt is very lucky to have so many dedicated volunteers. Each year, our volunteers donated over 7000 hours in classes. This doesn’t include the many hours volunteers donated to us with barn chores, help with training and our handy maintenance crew.

Without each and every one of our volunteers we couldn’t change lives. Thanks to all of you! Your time with us means so much.

Become a TROtt Volunteer!

Here at TROtt, our volunteers play a vital role in the operation of our Riding Program. We are very fortunate to have a terrific team of over 100 volunteers who, cumulatively, donated over 6000 hours of their time last year! Our dedicated group assists with grooming, tacking up, as well as ‘horse-handling’ and ‘side-walking’ during the lessons. No ‘horse’ experience? No problem. We offer extensive training to all new volunteers.

Volunteering at TROtt provides the opportunity to establish rewarding relationships with both our riders and horses.
