Volunteer for New Heights

No horse experience is necessary to volunteer at New Heights.  We have flexible volunteer opportunities available.  Whether you come out once a month for one hour, or twice a week for three hours at a time, we will work with you.  We know that your time is valuable and we will honor your needs and schedule. Volunteers are crucial to our organization, and we cannot operate without you. Volunteer training sessions are held the second Tuesday and last Saturday of every month. If you would like to volunteer and are 14 years old or older, please print and complete this form and bring it with you on your first day. Please direct any questions you may have to our online form or call our barn office (985)796-3677.

Volunteer opportunities include the following:

New Heights is located on seven acres, and we need help keeping up with all of the property. In addition we are adding several acres worth of trails, which we will need help maintaining.

VOLUNTEER Testimonials
  • I came to volunteer because of my love for horses. I stayed because of the students. I see how much they love these wonderful animals and how much they accomplish through this program. There is nothing I do that is more rewarding.
