ORGANIZATION: Promise Ranch Therapies & Recreation

  • 26 people are interested

Many of the students at Promise Ranch require the assistance of 1-2 side walkers to ensure their safety while mounted. Side walkers walk alongside the riders to ensure safety and help facilitate the lesson under the guidance of the instructor or therapist. Side walkers may be asked to demonstrate or help the riders with specific tasks, support or assist the rider physically, or facilitate games or activities as directed by the instructor or therapist. Side walkers may also be asked to assist with the mounting and dismounting of riders from the horse. Side walkers must be able to take direction from the instructors or therapists, work cooperatively with others, and be safety minded at all times. Side walking does not require prior knowledge or experience with horses and specific training will be provided.

  • Age Requirement: 16 and over
  • Physical Requirement: walk 60 min, jog short distances
