Group Projects

Maryland Therapeutic Riding appreciates the many volunteer groups that help us throughout the year with special projects and events. We are supported by many groups from around the Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan areas who help our events run smoothly and contribute to keeping the farm in pristine shape.

Volunteers must be at least 14 years old.  No volunteer orientation is necessary for group projects. Project assignments are dependent on time allotted and resources available.

If you would like to find out more about how your group or association can get involved for a morning, afternoon, or a whole day at the farm, please contact Volunteer Manager at 410-923-6800

To inquire about supplying in-kind donations, materials, professional services, and equipment for future projects, please contact our Executive Director, Cathy Rosenbaum, at 443-494-3013 or
