Reba

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.

Girard Training Stables is located at Tumbling T Ranch, a work-in-progress working farm. If you have any interest in gardening, farm animal care, general mechanics, or other farm-related activities or abilities, please let us know!

All volunteers do need to sign a liability release. Please wear boots or close-toed shoes.
