We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 at Morning Star Farm. Volunteers help groom and tack horses. We have three sessions at 10, 10:30, and 11. Volunteers "side walk" or walk beside the rider on each side to ensure their safety. Volunteers that are trained also lead the horse and together we enjoy a trail ride in O'Hair park. Volunteers interact with the riders throughout the ride.
We do prefer to have children/teen volunteers, and generally adults only come as parent/child teams. We do this in part because adults need fingerprinting and background checks to interact directly with the children. Adult volunteers must be willing to make a long-term commitment to volunteer, and do need to pass a rigorous application process.
