Our Therapeutic Riding Volunteers and Equine Assisted Therapy volunteers work directly with the Instructor to provide assistance prior to and during the therapeutic riding lessons. The main responsibilities include participating in the lesson by leading the horse or side-walking. As a volunteer for therapeutic sessions, it is best to be able to commit to the same day and time for a full 8 week session. Even if it is only for one session on a given day and time, your dependability is essential to our program and the students. Volunteers who work on the ranch with or near the horses must be a minimum of 15 years of age.
