Needed: Therapeutic Riding Program Volunteers

Pride Stables / Central Ontario Developmental Riding Program

Volunteers are needed to lead horses or side-walk for riders with special needs for our winter session of classes which runs for 6 weeks starting the week of January 20th 2020. 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 15 years of age or older.

We ask our volunteers to commit to at least one class per week.
Our winter classes run during the week in the daytime (Mon/Tues); evenings (Tues/Thurs); and on Saturdays. They are 45-60 minutes in length, however, volunteers are required to arrive 30 minutes early to groom and tack-up their horse, as well as to untack after class.

New and interested volunteers are asked to attend one of our orientation training sessions.
*Pre-registration for orientation is required*
Upcoming orientation training sessions:
Tuesday Jan. 7th: 12-2pm OR 6-8pm
Thursday Jan. 9th: 12-2pm OR 6-8pm
Saturday Jan. 11th: 12-2pm
