Program Volunteers assist riders and patients by grooming and tacking horses before class, supporting riders while in class, leading horses, and putting away horses after class. Program volunteers commit to one regular 2-hour shift for at least 6 months. We encourage a weekly placement and offer classes Monday through Saturday, from 8am to 8pm. We will do our best to find a spot during training that works with your schedule.
**PLEASE NOTE: We are incredibly fortunate in that our Saturday and evening program volunteer opportunities are currently full.
Program volunteers must be at least 14 years of age and attend Orientation and Program Volunteer Training.
Assisting in the arena is quite physical work - walking at quick speeds on uneven terrain, sometimes with one arm elevated, for at least 30 consecutive minutes. Program Volunteers also need to be able to work independently and have the ability to take initiative.
