We are 100% run by volunteers...
Your help keeps us going!
How can I help?
We can use your strengths in every area from grooming to building fences to hauling big round hay bales! Yes, some of the chores are not so glamorous, but it all needs to be done! Keeping horses in a safe and sound environment takes a lot of dedicated and hard work. We feel it's worth it, and can use all the help we can get.
The first step is to have you attend one of our volunteer orientations. We try to schedule a volunteer orientation on the first Saturday of every month. The orientation gives us a chance to introduce you to what we do and learn what your skills are. It also gives you a chance to see if our needs match your skills. To sign up for the next available volunteer orientation, click here.
Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Please fill out and bring a Release of Liability Waiver for everyone volunteering. You can download the document by clicking on the above link.

Help us win a grant of up to $5,000 just by helping us!!!
In 2012 the EQUUS Foundation's carrots4acause network is providing a volunteer incentive program to put your volunteer hours to work to win a grant of up to $5000 for HITVERAS.
Here's how it works:
If you log in a minimum of 24 volunteer hours over the course of the awards year starting on January 1, 2012, you will be recognized as an EQUUS Champion and become eligible for a drawing to receive an EQUUS foundation grant for HITVERAS.
The hours must be logged in online on the EQUUS Foundation Website and subsequently verified by The EQUUS Foundation.
The more volunteers we have participating, the better chance HITVERAS has of winning a CHAMPIONS grant.
