Without volunteers and donations we could not do your mission!  Your support, either through donation of time or a gift, help us care for the horses and provide life changing healing for children, teens, and adults throughout the Roanoke Valley area!

Ways to give the gift of volunteering time...

Special Projects around the farm!

We often have larger improvement and clean up projects we can use an extra hand around the barn with!  The barn environment and our horse's care is the number one priority for us in helping ensure our horses and clients have an empowering environment for healing.

Typical projects help we need:

  • barn chores and cleaning out the paddocks
  • fencing and maintenance help
  • landscaping and sprucing up the barn

A couple of bigger projects we are currently looking for help with:

  • laying paver stones for walkways into the indoor arena
  • building covered round bale feeders for the horses

Special Event Help

We have special events at Unbridled Change that require extra hands!  If you would like to help us during special events please let us know. The main times we need help are our two main fundraisers a year:

Annual Derby Party - first Saturday in May
Annual Gala

Typical help we need:

  • committee volunteers - people that really want to help with the planning and implementing of the event
  • day of volunteers - 50/50 and raffle selling; manning the silent auction tables, and information tables; parking help; set-up or take down help; and help with the bands

Committee Volunteer, Administrative Help, and Board Members
