We were surprised, humbled and honored to learn that Back in the Saddle Equine Therapy Center has been selected to receive an Volunteer Program Champion Award in the “Nonprofit” category at Volunteer NH’s 2017 Spirit of NH Awards Ceremony! We love what we do but we couldn't do it without all the donors and volunteers who help and support us. Thank you!
2017's Day of Caring
In spite of all the rain that fell this past September 6th, BITS was fortunate enough to have over 60 volunteers come from all around the community to help out on the farm. We were thrilled, and thank them all enough for everything they did.
On the right is a wonderful article from the Elektrisola Inc. newsletter about their time spent here. Many, many thanks, everyone. Hope to see you here again!
Our Volunteer Training sessions are scheduled for
the 3rd Saturday of the month.
We are in need of side walkers and leaders for our lessons.
No experience is necessary - just a desire to help our students!
We have many new students who want to ride and need your support.
Please contact us here to reserve your space.

Currently Looking For:
We have supervision for students in need of community service hours. No previous horse experience necessary... training supplied; documented volunteer hours, and a welcome campus at which to serve. We have something for anyone who wants to help us in our mission of getting them all "back in the saddle" and onto life's happy trails. Come be here when it happens!
There are numerous volunteer opportunities here at BITS. Horse leading and sidewalking for classes, barn chores, cleaning the grounds, gardening, and more. There's plenty to do on the farm - even if you're not inclined to work with the horses.
Volunteers age 14 and up help provide safe and effective therapy sessions for our clients. No previous horse experience necessary, training provided. Leaders, side-walkers, and spotters may be required during astride lessons.
Minimum of 2 hour commitment once a week, for our four week sessions. Come help us get them "back in the saddle" and on life's happy trails!
Thanks to United Way's Day of Caring!
September 7, 2016 was a busy day at BITS, with over 29 volunteers from the Concord, NH area. From landscaping, painting, digging up rocks from the paddocks and fields, everyone pitched in. It was a great success, and we are most grateful for all they did!
We're looking forward to next month's volunteers!
