Recruiting Organization: Free Rein Therapeutic Riding

Free Rein Therapeutic Riding is looking for volunteers this summer! If you like being outside and taking walks, being around horses or have a passion for helping those with debilitates, Free Rein has it all! Our classes are approximately an hour long and we need folks to walk alongside our riders for the duration of class! This is a fun, active and laid back environment - perfect for the free spirit, horse lover or PT student! Also a super easy way to get your exercise for the day! OR, get your required hours!

Our summer session begins July 10 and ends September 3. We have over 30 riders with 3-6 classes per day, Monday-Sunday. Volunteers may sign up for any number of classes or may be a substitute if a busy schedule doesn't allow for a full commitment! We ask that volunteers sign up for a session (ex: Mondays at 4:00 every week for 8 weeks). Summer session is 8 weeks long.

First step is to sign up for a Virtual Volunteer Orientation by going here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0944aaa62ea4f49-online3
