Specail Needs Child on Pony

Are you comfortable with horses? We need people who can lead a horse carrying a handicapped rider at the walk or to walk around an arena alongside the rider to protect and help clients guide the horse. Riders are needed to exercise the ponies between lessons. Lessons are every weekend and after school hours. Once a volunteer is partnered with a client, the volunteer needs to be there every week for six weeks. Can you make this your Saturday priority? Volunteer registration forms are available on the website: http://www.dreamriderequestriantherapy.com
