Horse Leaders and Side Walkers Riders in our program have specific goals that they work on during their sessions. These goals may include improvements in their balance, posture, muscle tone, speech, social skills and self-esteem. Certified instructors lead the lessons and trained volunteers are needed to assist each rider by leading the rider's horse (horse leader) and/or walking next to the rider (side walker) throughout the lesson.
Barn Assistant Our barn and equine managers works hard every day to keep our horses fed, watered and exercised. The horses' stalls are cleaned every morning. The horses' turn-out areas or paddocks are also cleaned regularly when temperatures above freezing permit it. The Barn Manager trains volunteers as barn Assistants to help with barn chores in the mornings during the week. Daily chores are sometimes affected by weather but include stall mucking, water-bucket cleaning, throwing down hay from the hayloft and sweeping the barn aisle.
Office Assistant We like to stay in contact with our riders and our volunteers and we do a number of mailings throughout the year. We often need an office volunteers to help us with mailings and flyers. If you like to work with computers, you can help us with data input and form design. We will gladly provide you with on the job training for any work you do in our office.
