Volunteering is an integral part of the Tara’s Chance Therapeutic Riding program and in order to be a volunteer for Tara’s Chance you must be at least 15. We rely on our volunteers to serve as the foundation for our sessions. Without the many volunteers that we utilize each day, many of our students would not be able to ride. In a class of two students, we may need as many as six volunteers! Some of our students require both a leader and two sidewalkers to help them stay balanced during the lessons. The leaders are in charge of keeping the horses at a safe and even pace while the sidewalkers assist by either supporting the student physically or providing encouragement and clarification. Although some of our riders are a little more independent, we still need volunteers to be able to make the lessons as safe and effective as possible.
