Volunteer Opportunities

Lesson Program Volunteer
Minimum Age: 16
Lesson program volunteers work as part of a team with each individual rider. Depending upon their experience, they may act as either a horse leader, or a sidewalker directly supporting the rider. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one 30 minute lesson per week for the duration of the lesson session, to provide continuity for each student. A lesson volunteer must be able to walk briskly for 30 minutes in order to keep pace with a horse and possible help support a rider.

Fund Raising Assistants
Minimum Age: 18
Volunteers are welcome to assist with planning and execution of the two principle annual fund raisers that support program operations. The Derby Dash Bash is held the first Saturday in May, in conjunction with the running of the Kentucky Derby. The Ghoulish Gallop 5K race and 1 Mile Fun Walk is held every fall. Assistance is needed to help with event planning, to secure monetary sponsorships, and to staff both events.

*Guardians are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations. The Guardian Designation is awarded annually.
