We provide all volunteers with a 2-day volunteer training program to ensure that they are trained and ready to confidently and safely start their volunteer position.


Our volunteers can expect to be supervised and supported throughout their shifts and time at Horse Therapy Centre of Canada.


While working with horses can be dangerous at times, Horse Therapy Centre of Canada has safety and crisis procedures that are in place to ensure that our volunteers, clients and staff are safe.


HTCC is an inclusive, anti-oppressive workplace. You will be able to be yourself and be celebrated for coming as you are.
