We encourage all volunteers and supporters of Summit Valley Horse Center to become annual members, which expands your opportunities as a trained volunteer working in programs for adults and children with our fostered rescue horses. SVHC Memberships help ensure we have sufficient funds to continue offering a wide range of experiential equine programs to children and young adults.
