About

We are looking for caring and compassionate individuals with or without horse experience (we will train) to assist in keeping our riders safe and secure during their riding lessons.
Duties include but are not limited to grooming, saddling and caring for the horses, helping students be safe around the horses.
Horse handlers and side walkers are needed during lessons. The horse handler is responsible for the horse during the lesson. Side walkers assist the instructor to keep the rider in position and safely on the horse.
Volunteers and staff work outdoors in many different weather conditions. If you join us at Hope Reins you may find you get as much and sometimes more from helping our students! We aim to provide a positive experience for all.
Assistance with fundraising for special events throughout the year is always welcome.
