The volunteer horse leader's primary responsibility is management of the horse riden by the physically and/or mentally challenged rider. Before a volunteer can become a horse leader he/she must:
1. Exhibit knowledge of horses and horsemanship
2.Observe experienced leaders during a session
3.Attend at least one orientation session
4.Become familiar with the TSR horses and their characteristics.
Sessions are 3-10 weeks long (10 week sessions in the spring and fall and a shorter session in the summer and winter).
Sessions are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings and Tuesday afternoon. Potential additional days and time including weekends. Help is needed for any of these sessions.
