Therapeutic Horse Riding Program Volunteers


Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on April 18, 2017

Volunteers are an essential part of Grand Equestrians. No Horse Experience is Necessary. There are many areas where volunteers' efforts are needed, such as fund raising, recruiting other volunteers, helping the instructor, assisting the riders, and public relations. Without volunteers, the students would not be able to ride.
Volunteers will have the opportunity to :
Demonstrate increased awareness, sensitivity and appreciation of the abilities of people with physical, mental and/or emotional challenges.
Assist riders safely and properly as leaders and side-walkers.
Learn to use appropriate safety procedures and adaptive equipment.
Explore career opportunities in therapeutic riding and other related fields, such as medicine, education and rehabilitation.
Involve individuals with disabilities in other 4-H clubs and activities.
Participate in committee activities involving the responsibilities for planning, developing, facilitating and evaluating the Grand Equestrians Therapeutic Riding Program.

Volunteer Orientation is mandatory: Thursday, June 1, 2017 from 6:30-8:00pm at the farm. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old to directly handle the horses and assist with the riders. Younger volunteers can assist the instructor with program setup, assist with therapeutic games, and help riders with decorations for events and shows.

This opportunity is sponsored by: Grand Equestrians Therapeutic Riding Program
