Interested in working with people with challenges?
Join our vibrant volunteer community on a beautiful horse farm! Windrush Farm is a therapeutic riding center helping people with all kinds of challenges in their lives. Our misson is to promote confidence, independence and well-being in children and adults with physical, cognitive or emotional challenges through therapeutic riding and horse related programs.
Horse handlers are responsible for bringing our horses down to the arena for the lesson, and leading and managing the horse during the lesson. Horse handlers will need to learn our horsemanship techniques to keep handling skills consistent for our horses.
The minimum age for horse handlers is 14.
We typically need volunteers in 1 hour classes Monday through Friday between 8:30- 6:30pm.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for considering us as your volunteer opportunity! https://www.windrushfarm.org/
