Benefits of Getting Involved in Your Local Horse Community


Have you ever wanted a chance to give back to the community through horses? Whether you want to preserve open space and trails for future generations or share horses with people who might not otherwise have the chance to ride, there are a plethora of ways to get involved. Regardless of your interest, your time and attention to a good cause can make a huge difference.

So, how do you get involved? As a gathering place for local equestrians, tack shops are usually a good place to start networking to find out about local organizations and events. Google, or your search engine of choice, is also your friend. Try searching for the following places to volunteer: therapeutic riding, animal rescue or land conservation organizations in your area.

Therapeutic Riding Organizations

Over the past several years, therapeutic riding has become an increasingly popular way to help physically and mentally challenged children and adults expand their horizons and experience a new found freedom. Wounded warriors are also partaking in equine therapy. These nonprofit organizations are always looking for volunteers. Spend your days grooming horses, cleaning stalls or learn how to be a side walker and assist the special needs riders. Not only will you be around horses, but you will see firsthand the profound impact equine interaction can have on these riders' lives.

Equine Rescue Organizations

Put your "horse person" skills to good use as you give neglected and abused horses some much needed TLC. Rescues are always looking for support to rehabilitate rescued horses. The most rewarding part of any equine rescue is helping find loving, forever homes for the horses.

Land Conservation Groups

As urban sprawl continues, all equine activities are threatened as we lose open space to pursue horse related activities. The Equine Land Conservation Resource was established to protect land for our future generations of riders. Get involved and tackle preservation issues at a local or national level.

Looking for something closer to home? Get in touch with a local trail ride organization and see if they need help grooming the trails to make them safe for all to enjoy. Not only can you improve the condition of the trails, you may even find some new trail buddies.

Not sure where to start?

Look no further than your feed room. Turn your empty feed bags into cash through the Southern States Special Horse Organization Winner's (SHOW) Program. Collect proof of purchase tags and send them to your SHOW program member of choice.
