Horsemanship Program Volunteer

The Equine Center Horsemanship Program Volunteer directly assists in our riding and horsemanship program and prepares students for their lessons. The Horsemanship Program Volunteers are experienced horse people that can provide a lending hand to our instructors and directly work with the Equine Center horses. They will assist in teaching students to groom and tack up ponies as well as lead horses in the ring and make sure our horses are properly dressed and put away. This is a great opportunity for someone who would like more direct horse time and has a desire to share their horse knowledge with children.
