Our Volunteers work directly with clients during Therapeutic Riding lessons. Volunteers can serve as groomers- who help get our horses ready for lessons, leaders- who lead the horse and maintain the safety of the rider and the horse during lessons and side walkers- who walk along side the rider and horse during the lesson and ensure our riders stay safe. Volunteers must be physically capable to walk on uneven terrain for a minimum of one hour. Prior equine experience is required for horse leaders but not for side walking. New volunteers are required to attend a new volunteer training prior to working in classes. Lessons run 6 days a week. On Monday - Friday from late morning until 8 pm and on Saturday's from 8-1.
