About

Like horses? Want to make a difference? UpReach is looking for volunteers to work alongside our riders during lessons. Experience with horses is welcome but not required. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work alongside our riders as a side walker or take charge as a leader during lessons.

Volunteers must attend one training session before actively working in lessons and be 14 years old and older. The next training sessions take place on: Saturdays 1pm-4pm on Oct. 21, December 16, 2017 February 10, April 14, and June 16, 2018. There is also training dates on Mondays 6pm-9pm Oct. 23, December 18, Feb 12, April 16, and June 18.

To further expand your volunteer capacities, you may also chose to be a leader for our horses. This requires just one extra training session. The Taking the Lead training sessions are on Saturdays from 10:30am-12pm on Oct. 21, December 16, Feb 10, April 14, and June 16. Or you may choose a Wednesday from 6pm-7:30pm on November 8, December 27, Feb 21, April 25, or June 27.
