Experience is preferred but not required.
A side walker must be able to walk throughout a 30 minute client riding session without stopping. Client sessions are back to back every 30 minutes. Up to three (3) client sessions are in motion at a time. Side Walkers are often trained to lead service horses and/or tack for client sessions if you have an interest to help in those capacities. If you are wanting to get your daily steps in, this could be a prefect fit for you.

Volunteering at ATRC is a life changing experience for both the volunteer and the client rider. Equine Assisted Services (EAS) utilizes oriented activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with varying types and degrees of special needs (official diagnosis, seeing a counselor/social worker) providing the opportunity to work with riders to benefit areas of socialization, posture, strength, mobility, and an overall improved quality of life.

We have the scheduling ability to coordinate with your need for hours. Our sessions are 30 minutes each; therefore, you can volunteer the hours, date/time that fits your life style.
