WATCH: The riders at Harmony Farms range in age from a four-year-old autistic boy to an 87-year-old lady suffering the ravages of stroke. Referred by physicians or therapists, they are coping with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, autism, multiple sclerosis and stroke. This video was produced in 2012.

Some Harmony Farms volunteers have clocked 15 to 20 years of service to the nonprofit. Above, 18-year volunteer Karen with Diamond and Spud.
The horses at Harmony Farms are inspiring, providing hope to the troubled and the infirm. They can change lives…and they do.

Some Harmony Farms volunteers have clocked 15 to 20 years of service to the nonprofit. They returned to their duties as soon as possible, but pandemic still caused a drain in the volunteer pool and more helping hands are needed. Volunteers also groom and saddle horses, exercise them and clean their stalls. Those who prefer indoor settings can help with administrative duties and fundraising events.

“Harmony Farms would not be possible without volunteers,” said Rogan.

Many riders require three volunteers: a horse leader and two side walkers. Volunteers also groom and saddle horses, exercise them and clean their stalls. Those who prefer indoor settings can help with administrative duties and fundraising events.

Unlike some organizations, Harmony Farms has no minimum time expectations from volunteers. Experience is not needed, either.

“We teach them what they need to know,” said Rogan.

While minimum age for volunteering is 13, there is no limit to maximum age, and some volunteers are enjoying their golden years out in the fresh air helping with the horses. Volunteers can start at any time.
