About

Volunteers for RideAble must 16 years or older. To be a volunteer with RideAble you need to enjoy the outdoors and spending time with people. As a volunteer you will be working with horses and people with special needs age 3 years and older. You will assist some students with grooming, tacking, and riding; others will need 3 volunteers to stay balanced in the saddle. You function as an assistant to the instructor during class time. Leaders: The leader is needed when the rider is not able or not ready to control the horse by use of the reins. Leaders need to be aware at all times of both the behavior of the horse and the needs of the rider. Sidewalker: A rider with difficulty maintaining balance may need one or two side walkers. The side walker may actually hold the rider onto the horse or may serve only as a spotter, ready to assist if needed.
