Additional Volunteer Opportunities

Stall Mucking

Believe it or not, this may be one of the most popular opportunity amongst our volunteers! They say that the quiet time in the barn and physical activity is therapy in itself for them. Now, I don't think its a proven therapy, but if you want to see for yourself we are always looking for volunteers.


We all know how quickly things can become over grown, muddy, or in need of attention, especially at a barn. With that being said, our wonderful maintenance crew always has something to keep them busy throughout the season. If you love weed whacking, fixing fences, pressure washing, unloading hay, etc. we would love to have you as a volunteer! 


Lets make a difference together.

Together we can continue to grow the Rising Hope mission. Give back any way you can, whether it be volunteering or donating, to sharing what we are doing, we appreciate your generosity and support!
