How to Help



Volunteers are the backbone of our organization.  We have 3 paid instructors.  All other needs are handled by volunteers.  This includes fund raising, publicity, grant writing, mailings, newsletters, and organizing the annual Antique Show and Sale (our primary fundraiser) as well as caring for the horses and equipment and assisting during the riding sessions.  You don’t have to be a rider or horse person to help KART.


There are many ways to support the wonderful purpose for which KART exists.  Here in brief are some of our volunteer needs as well as how to donate to KART and whom to contact if you think you have a horse that would be a good therapeutic riding horse.


Volunteers are as special and varied as our riders!

At the Farm

  • Grooming

  • Leading and/or side-walking

  • Helping with helmets

  • Helping with stable management

Not At the Farm

Would you serve on a committee responsible for:

  • Antiques Show

  • KART Klassic Golf Tournament

  • Volunteer Recruitment

  • Publicity and Advertising

  • Securing Sponsors and Donations for Special Events

To volunteer or to have someone contact you with more information, please e-mail




While our many volunteers do much of the work of the program, we do have real bills to pay to make this program possible.  Our fundraising covers these costs among others:

  • Horse Stall and Board

  • Veterinarian Fees

  • Farrier

  • Horse Dental Care

  • Equipment

  • Instructor Fees

  • Ring Fees

  • Insurance
