We need volunteers for fall session of ridingto lead horses or side-walk for riders with special needs. As a leader, you will need the ability to understand and carry out direct instructions. As a side-walker, you will need to comprehend instructions and be able to pass them on to the rider and will also need to physically assist/support the rider if needed. Both positions require physical endurance, good verbal skills and excellent comprehension.
We ask our volunteers to commit to at least one class per week for a full session (8-10 weeks in the fall).
Fall classes run on Saturdays and on weekdays in the daytime and evenings. They are 45 or 60 minutes in length, however, volunteers are required to arrive 30 minutes early to groom and tack-up their horse, as well as to untack after class.
New volunteers are asked to attend one 2-hour orientation training session.
