Some of our amazing volunteers!
New Volunteer Onboarding
We hope to make your onboarding informative and interesting. We will provide all the training required; and rest assured, we will walk you through all steps so that you are equipped!
General Volunteer Guidelines
Our current program extends to group lessons and lessons requiring side walkers so there are many volunteers, participants and horses to coordinate for each lesson. This makes for a lot of moving parts to coordinate while ensuring a focused, calm and safe environment from the start to end of every lesson.
Lesson Letter Coding
Each of our lessons are assigned a letter code A,B,C or D referring to the rider classifications in a specific lesson. These codes allow you as a volunteer to know in advance what is expected during each lesson.
Online Volunteer Training Videos
We believe these videos to be a great resource for all volunteers from how to retrieve a horse in a paddock to tacking to leading and more..
