Volunteers have the opportunity to lead a horse during our adaptive riding lessons and/or walk beside horse and rider as a sidewalker. Volunteers also perform a variety of tasks throughout the barn including grooming, tacking, and assisting with the care of our FTEA horses. All volunteers work under the supervision of PATH Intl.
