 Barn Buddies - being a barn buddy is a very important job. Barn buddies clean our
horses’ stalls at least three times per week. They also get our horses ready for lessons.
Barn buddies are our behind-the-scenes heroes!

 Horse Leaders - horse leaders lead our horses in the arena. It is the job of the Horse
Leader to maintain the safety of the horse at all times. Horse leaders must not have a fear
of horses and be willing to get up close and personal with the horse. Horse leaders must
help the horse follow the instructor’s direction. Being a horse leader is an 8-week
commitment for 1-hour per week.

 Side Walkers - side walkers help ensure the safety of our participants. They walk
beside our riders as they are on their horses in the arena. The job of the side walker is to
help maintain the balance of the rider when he cannot do so for himself, to clarify
instructions and directions when needed, and to provide reassurance and
encouragement to the rider. The instructor helps the side walker learn how to best
support the rider. Being a side walker is an 8-week commitment for 1-hour per week.
