Sidewalking with a rider

Sidewalking is a hands on experience helping children and adults with developmental delays and disabilities learn to ride a horse. You are walking beside the horse to ensure the rider safety and help them with learning the skills needed to become independent equestrians. No experience is necessary, our training program will teach you everything you need to know. You should be healthy and able to walk at least 30 minutes in the sandy arena and able to assist a rider from the horse in case of emergency. Weekly attendance is encouraged so riders have consistent helpers. More information and application can be found at http://www.lovingthunder.com/how-do-i-volunteer.html
