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.
As a horse leader, your responsibilities are numerous and incredibly important! Leaders are a huge part of getting our horses ready for class, helping the clients groom, tack, and lead the horse. Leaders are responsible for helping in the mounting process in the block/lift and are trained appropriately for this instance. The instructors look to our leaders to help the clients maintain control over their horses as well as to maintain safe space during class. Leaders will also be responsible for being an extension of the instructor, helping the client as much or as little as is necessary to keep the horse moving in the appropriate direction. Leaders become our second sets of eyes and ears at all time to help keep horses, clients, volunteers, and staff safe.
