We are looking for Lakeway Volunteers to attend one visit per month at Baylor Scott & White Institute of Rehabilitation of Lakeway. This will be on the 3rd Friday at 10 am every month. Visits are 45-60 minutes in length.
You MUST come through Volunteer Training - the next workshop will be in early September at our southeast boarding ranch. Location and instructions will be sent to you, once I have your application.
The visit is an indoor visit to Baylor Scott & White Institute of Rehabilitation of Lakeway.
You must have an APPROVED application on file
Mini-Handler Requirements - you must be physically fit to handle a miniature horse of 100 - 220# in all situations. The minis may be small but they are strong. This is our most popular position - but we need to let you know beforehand - that Safety is #1 in Minis and Friends
Please be aware that working with the minis is physically challenging. Mini handlers must be able to stand for long periods of time as well as have excellent balance. Your work as a handler requires agility to move alongside the mini while walking as well as move quickly when changing positions during a close-up interaction with those we visit. We ensure the safety of both the minis as well as our volunteers or the reverse at all times and this has given us a fantastic reputation for being "safety first" when we work with the little horse therapists.
A $20 Admin donation will be requested to cover your volunteer packet and logo t-shirt. Your logo t-shirt will be given to you at class.
