TROT provides equine assisted activities and therapies for special needs children and adults. As a SideWalker volunteer you act as a "safety net" for the rider by walking or jogging alongside the horse and rider. The Side Walker interacts with the student at the direction of the instructor. The volunteer must be in good health and able to be physically active and mentally alert and focused for the one hour session. He/she must also be able to tolerate severe heat and dust. Training is provided and covers such things as communication with the student, assisting with mounts and dismounts, arena work and trotting. Once the volunteer has tried out for this position the volunteer coordinator and instructors schedule the volunteer based on our needs and their availability if and when appropriate.

We will be setting up a training class for our upcoming 6 week semester that begins on April 17.
