DreamPower exists only because of the time, energy and commitment given freely by  our

amazing and wonderful volunteers.  The first step in becoming a volunteer is to attend a New

Volunteer Orientation.  These are held once a month at DreamPower.  At the New Volunteer

Orientation you will learn about the DreamPower programs, learn about current volunteer

opportunities, tour the facility and meet the DreamPower horses.  The minimum age to volunteer

is 14.  No horse experience is required to volunteer at DreamPower, but we welcome and

appreciate volunteers with solid horse experience.


Horse sponsors provide the cost of stall rental, feed, and routine hoof and veterinary care for

their horse for one year. This is $5000 per year (12 months) for a riding horse and $2500 per year

for a miniature horse or donkey. The sponsorship may be paid on an annual, semi-annual,

quarterly or monthly basis.  For more information on sponsoring a DreamPower horse, please
