TEAM-FPC is looking for horse leaders and side walkers to assist in therapeutic horseback riding sessions. Volunteers do not need to have any horse experience (although if you do - that's even better). Volunteers must be able to commit to 1 to 2 time slots per week for a full semester (16 weeks). New volunteer training takes place monthly.
