Fall Therapeutic Riding Volunteers
September 8, 2019 @ 12:00 am - November 10, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Seasonal Therapeutic Riding (STR) starts the week of September 8th. We need volunteers on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. If you have a passion for special needs kids and adults, enjoy being outdoors, can commit to 10 weeks of volunteering and love the magic horses can do for humans this is the place to go! Check out the SignUp Genius for the available slots.
Horse-Leader – this volunteer needs horse experience. They lead the horse and monitor it so the rider stays safe.
Side-Walker – make sure the rider stays steady on the horse. They communicate with the rider and reinforce what the riding instructor teaches.
Coach – for riders who are more independent and do not need a side-walker. They communicate with the rider and reinforce what the riding instructor teaches.
Groomers – these folks groom and tack the horses prior to the ride. Horse-leaders, side-walkers, and coaches are welcome to sign up to groom prior to their ride times.
Host – these folks greet people as they arrive at the barn, keep track of volunteer log sheets, and direct people to the places they need to go. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on this position.
