Program VolunteersMinimum Age: 14EEMV is always looking for program volunteers! These volunteers assist with our lessons. We use volunteers as leaders, to lead the horses. We also use volunteers as sidewalkers. Sidewalkers walk next to our disabled clients and provide physical and/or emotional support. We don't require any prior experience with horses or disabilities to be a volunteer. EEMV will provide the necessary training for the job. We use volunteers Mon-Sat, throughout the day and into the evening.
