Dates Volunteer is Needed:
Ongoing for lesson or horse care schedules
Description of the Volunteer Opportunity:
Volunteers are needed in two main areas: 1. Lesson Assistance - Sidewalk or be a horse leader to support the riders during their therapeutic riding lessons to promote independence and safety while learning horsemanship. Lessons are Monday through Saturday, and volunteers are encouraged to pick a day/time that works best for their weekly schedule. 2. Horse Care - help feed, care for, and love on our therapy horse herd. Volunteers can choose which day/time works best for them. No horse experience is necessary, we will give you all the training and tools you need to be a successful volunteer.
Who Will Be Impacted Through This Project:
Each rider with a special need, the therapy horses, and your fellow volunteers and staff at NMCTR. This is a great opportunity to not only make a difference, but to meet some amazing people along the way.
