Thank you for your generosity in deciding to volunteer with Colorado HorsePower! Without you we could not operate our program – you’re the best!

Volunteering in our classes not only improves the lives of our students, but it will also enhance your life as well. It is said that “there is something about the outside of the horse that is good for the inside of a man (woman).” Come and find out what that magic is. Volunteers are currently needed on Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Our schedules are flexible to meet your needs. We can accommodate volunteers who are only able to join us a couple of times a month as well as those who would like to be here a few days a week. We also work with students seeking to fulfill their services hours. You can easily sign up on our website – just follow the process listed on the right. We will then contact you to schedule an orientation that fits your schedule. Thank you for considering being part of our team!
