Volunteer Opportunities

Side Walking
Side walkers work with the rider to make sure he or she is safely able to complete the lesson. Most riders have one to two side walkers depending on need. Side walkers walk alongside the horse and give support and aid to the rider as needed.

Horse Leader
Horse leaders lead the horse during the lesson. The goal of the horse leader is to give the rider as much control of the horse as possible. Some riders just have leaders walk alongside the horse, while other leaders completely control the horse. Horse leaders must have previous horse experience.
