Do you like horses? We have the job for you. Loving Thunder is the only Premier Accredited Path Intl center in New Mexico. We comply with the highest standards of therapeutic horseback riding and Equine Psychotherapy. Hardly any one thinks of all the care that our horses need. And we need a few good people to help with those daily chores and keep our barns clean and healthy. We try to have volunteers daily so the job is not so big for any one person. We have 10 horses and it takes about 2 hours per day, You should to be healthy and able to lift 30-40 lbs. You can set your own time of the day once you are trained. And you can take all the time you want to hug on our horses. They love to be cuddled and petted. If you love horses and don't mind a little physical activity this is the job for you. Visit our website at www.lovingthunder.com or call me at 206-9090.
