The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Girard Training Stables offers riding lessons to special needs and typical riders of all ages. We welcome volunteers, including those without horse experience! If you are enthusiastic, patient, and willing to learn, we will be happy to teach you. We offer lessons Monday through Saturday, but need volunteers to feed horses and clean stalls daily.
Volunteers clean stalls, feed horses, help students groom and tack their horses, provide assistance during riding lessons,and perform extra chores and miscellaneous tasks around the barn.
All volunteers do need to sign a liability release. Please wear boots or close-toed shoes.
