City Horse is Recruiting Volunteers!
City Horse is looking for volunteers to support our programs. We are currently recruiting volunteers to help us in various areas.
Will You Stand with Us?
City Horse is committed to connecting all low-income students, especially black and brown students of color to horses and animals. As a way to decompress from the stress of our everyday lives, City Horse understands that our students need ways to release. Horses and animals have been proven to reduce the stress hormone (cortisol) in kids with just one interaction with a horse. This can improve how our kids perform in school and in life.
With the shelter in place and troubling times our adults, families, but especially our kids are facing, it is even more important for our black and brown youth to get connected with horses and nature. City Horse has done this since 2014.
Our kids need the reflections, the introspection and the drive to be intentional, specific and direct in their desire to succeed. Why not expose them to as much as possible, regardless of their income.
City Horse can see that the civil unrest happening throughout the nation is to protect the kids and student body that City Horse serves. Black and brown boys and girls want to live and the protests are necessary!
I thank you all for raising your voice and we appreciate you and your sacrifice. Please support the City Horse program because we understand that the field of animal science/ biology, agriculture and equine competition doesn't look like us. This is because history has erased the contributions and legacy of black and brown cowboys.
Please know that City Horse sees the disparity and will continue to work to garner a greater opportunity for our students, now and in the further.

Thank you to every student, parent, volunteer, sponsor and community partner that has supported City Horse!
City Horse is proud we have connected more than sixty-five hundred (6500+) students and families to horses, fun and farm animals through our "Kids Carnival" and school programs.
City Horse has a very ambitious goal. In 2022-2023, our goal is to connect more than 100 students to horses and animal science programs. We are off to a good start. With your help we can make this year our best year yet!
