1 person is interested
Did you know that the TR program in Parks and Recreation is one of three in the state that is part of a parks division? The LFUCG TR program has been serving people with disabilities for over 50 years.
Horsemanship is a popular program throughout the city and TR participants enjoy the lessons immensely. This is a 1 on 1 opportunity where each volunteer assists a rider as the lesson occurs. Side walking is the primary task that volunteers perform and it is critical for some of the riders to have the security. Volunteers who have had experience with horses may be familiar with techniques used during lessons; however experience with horses is not required! Five (5)) volunteers are needed per class and having the same volunteers throughout the course assures continuity, trust and confidence in TR participants. Advanced riders will have basic horsemanship skill levels.
