The Horse Leader walks (and sometimes jogs briefly) beside the Horse during a lesson to maintain control of the horse, helping to ensure Rider safety. Control and calming of the Horse is the Horse Leader's only responsibility during the lesson, and the Horse Leader may also take on grooming and tacking duties before and after the lesson. Training is provided for volunteers in our program, but we do prefer that Horse Leaders have some experience handling horses or other large animals. Volunteers may choose which lesson they want to work with weekly or on a lesson-by-lesson basis.
