TREE House of Greater St. Louis, formerly known as Therapeutic Horsemanship, relies heavily on the support of its 250-plus volunteers to keep its therapy, recreation, education and exploration programs for individuals with disabilities running.

Most program volunteers start in the adaptive therapeutic riding and equine-assisted therapy program as sidewalkers, but other positions, including leader, horse handler, office, facility and special event volunteers, are available.

Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age, but horse experience is not necessary. Orientation and training occur at least twice a month.
