If you can commit to at least 2 hours a week for six weeks after school hours or every Saturday morning at 9:30 - 11:00 am or Saturday afternoon at 2:30 - 4:00 pm, please call Catherine Hand 619-445-2576 to arrange to attend training sessions every Saturday morning starting July 11, 2020, for our new session beginning in August, 2020. A signed liability release is required to participate, which can be downloaded from http://www.dreamriderequestriantherapy.com.
The only requirements are the ability to fulfill a commitment, to be physically able to walk for one hour, and your willingness to learn how to assist special needs and young children on horseback. All you need to know will be included in the training.
If you are allergic to horses ,you should probably not apply ,or if you suffer from anxiety attacks ,this work requires a mature acceptance of the responsibility to help keep yourself, the pony, and the children focused and calm. That will depend on your own self-control. This work cannot be done without the help of volunteers. Your time will be much appreciated.
Knowledge is power. We are here to give that to you if you can make this time your priority.
