There are so many ways that you can support Ride High. Whether it’s helping the children in their riding and clubroom lessons, volunteering your time at one of our fundraising events or offering your expertise, we’d love to hear from you!

Children's Volunteer

Every two hour session with the children consists of one hour riding and horse care and one hour of clubroom work. The instructors at the riding school run the hour on the yard but our skilled staff run the clubroom sessions. These include various projects and creative activities to work on personal and life skills.

The Children’s volunteer role involves welcoming the children, helping to find their equipment, getting them out into the stable yard for their lesson on time, assisting with riding lessons where appropriate (no experience necessary) and clubroom activities, giving the children refreshments and helping to see that they get their transport home.

We are looking for volunteers who can work with the children; helping to build their confidence, encouraging them to participate in sessions. 

Our sessions run Monday to Friday throughout the day and after school during term time and we also provide activity days and trips during school holidays.

Being a children’s volunteer is a really rewarding experience: Just ask some of our current volunteers!  You can also download a copy of our 2023 Volunteers’ Survey results here.


To speak to someone about volunteering with the children please email centremanager@ridehigh.org or call 01908 696169 to speak to our Centre Manager.

“I had a rewarding time at Ride High and saw many milestones in the development of the children in the 12 week programme. The children are a credit to Ride High and themselves. The change in the children has been something special to watch and be involved with”.

“Volunteering with Ride High has given me a new focus in life. I feel privileged to have been able to form a bond with the group I support”.

Event Volunteer

Our fundraising events couldn’t take place without the support of our wonderful volunteers. From selling raffle tickets at our local quiz to Master of Ceremonies at our annual black tie ball, volunteers are at the centre of everything we do.

We have a range of roles so there’s sure to be something to suit you whether you have a couple of hours to spare every now and then, or you are looking to get involved with the regular fundraising team.

Alternatively, if you are thinking of organising your own event to benefit Ride High please do let us know as we will happily support your event in some way.

If you would like more information about volunteering at an event, you can contact us via email: events@ridehigh.org
