About

If you love horses and being outside while making a difference in someones life, then this is the opportunity for you!

The horse walker/leader is the person who maintains constant awareness and control of the horse,but at the same time, focuses on the actions of the students and the directions from the instructor. For more independent students, the horse leader/handler may be directed to allow the student complete control of the horse, but remain vigilant and prepared to regain control of the horse at any time.

The sidewalker is the person who provides physical and motivational interaction and support to the student, and maintains constant safety awareness. During the lesson , the sidewalker will assist the student with maintaining balance. One or two sidewalkers may be assigned according to the student's needs. Some students may need a sidewalker to help them understand and follow the insturctor's directions.
