Volunteers are the backbone of Equi-librium!
The program volunteer is a KEY element in providing our riders with a safe and enjoyable environment!
Volunteers assist the riding instructor and/or therapist in carrying out the riders' Individual Program Plan (IPP), helping to maximize the progress for our riders. Volunteers usually work as horse handlers or sidehelpers. There are other volunteer opportunities available for those not wishing to be involved in the activities in the riding arena, such as office work, general barn assistance, fund raising, mailings, etc.
Most importantly, volunteers find Equi-librium to be fun and exciting. Experiencing the connection with rider and horse is a special gift that is both challenging and rewarding. Prior horse experience is not necessary! Due to our insurance guidelines, volunteers must be 14 years or older. Our training session will prepare you to become a sidehelper in the riding arena; if you'd rather not be involved in lessons directly there are also lots of other tasks that can be done.
Volunteer Training dates for 2016: March 12, April 9, May 14, June 11, July 9, August 13, September 10 & October 15.
