August Evening Volunteers Needed for Therapeutic Riding Program

    Kitchener, ON
  • WHEN


Do you love horses? Love children and being active? Pride Stables offers a unique volunteer opportunity!

Volunteers are needed to lead horses or side-walk for riders with special needs for our August evening classes. As a leader, you will need the ability to understand and carry out direct instructions. As a side-walker, you will need to comprehend instructions and be able to pass them on to the rider and will also need to physically assist/support the rider if needed. Both positions require physical endurance, good verbal skills and excellent comprehension. No horse experience is necessary; Hands-on orientation training is available. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old.

We ask our volunteers to commit to at least one class per week for the full 4 week August session. We are currently recruiting for the 6pm classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Volunteers must arrive 30 minutes early to groom and tack-up their horse, as well as to untack after the 45 min. class is done.

Please email us confirming you meet/exceed the age threshold to get started! volunteering@pridestables.com
