Listening Horse Therapeutic Riding and its Equine Services for Heroes program would not exist without the support of our volunteers and sponsors. We have several options for getting involved. Please call or e-mail if you’d like to contribute your time and energy for a fun and rewarding experience!

To volunteer, contact Laurie: or 505-670-3577


If you’re an experienced rider and would like to learn to become an instructor with our program, we can use your skills! You will get to know our horses and work with one of our instructors to learn the techniques specific to Listening Horse. No one knows everything there is to know about horses or about riding, so we all share knowledge and learn from each other.


Some of our riders need “Sidewalkers” to assist them in grooming, mounting and riding. Sidewalkers need not have experience with horses. We’ll teach you the skills you need to work with riders who have specific challenges.


We always need help with the administrative end of things, as well as with special events, publications, and fundraising.
