Side Walker Lesson Volunteer

It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


1300 Lawrence ParkwaySt. Gabriel, LA 70776


Side-walkers participate directly in the lessons with our riders. They walk alongside the riders, using a thigh hold or ankle hold to ensure that the child stays securely on the horse and is paying attention to the instructor. As a side-walker, your primary responsibility is to maintain constant safety awareness, while providing physical and emotional support to the rider.

Minimum age is 14, and previous horse experience is not required.
