Job Summary Sidewalkers – Assist riders in the saddle by supporting them physically or assisting them cognitively. No horse riding or handling experience is needed, but you must be comfortable around horses. All new volunteers are generally started as sidewalkers, but may take on other tasks once they’ve become more familiar with our program.

Horse Leaders – Lead a horse for a rider during classes. You must have some experience handling horses on the ground to be a horse leader. Additional training is required and provided.

Horse Handlers – Grooming, tacking, and exercising horses before classes begin. You MUST have riding experience to serve as a horse handler. Additional training is required and provided.

On-call Class Volunteers - We OFTEN need substitute side walkers and horse leaders for our regular class volunteers. If for any reason they cannot make it to their scheduled time slot, we need volunteers who we can call as fill-ins. This is a great option for those who want to come be involved but cannot make a regular weekly commitment.
