101322 EB Riding Session-4.jpg

Volunteering at Equestrian Bridges is not only rewarding to the riders and the families we serve, but also to the volunteers. Hearing a non-verbal child speak for the first time or watching a rider overcome a fear is truly remarkable. Whether you're serving as extra support during a session, working morning or evening muck meditation, grooming mini therapy horses, or helping with facility maintenance, you help provide mental and physical wellness for individuals and families of Northwest Arkansas.
