Do you love horses? Love children and being active? Pride Stables offers a unique volunteer opportunity!
Volunteers are needed to lead horses or side-walk for riders with special needs for our summer evening classes which run in two blocks of 4 weeks each (July; August). As a leader, you will need the ability to understand and carry out direct instructions. As a side-walker, you will need to comprehend instructions and be able to pass them on to the rider and will also need to physically assist/support the rider if needed. Both positions require physical endurance, good verbal skills and excellent comprehension. No horse experience is necessary; Hands-on orientation training is available. Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older.
We ask our volunteers to commit to at least one class per week for a full session (4 weeks in summer).
Summer classes run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. They are 45 minutes in length, however, volunteers are required to arrive 30 minutes early to groom and tack-up their horse, as well as to untack after class.
New volunteers are asked to attend one of our orientation training sessions.
*Pre-registration for orientation is required*
Upcoming orientation training sessions:
6-8pm on Tues Jun 12, Thurs Jun 14, Mon Jun 18, Wed Jun 20, or Thurs Jun 28
12-2pm on Sat June 23 or Thurs Jun 28
