Here are the opportunities we have available based upon your selections above:

Therapeutic Riding Lesson Sidewalker

Sidewalkers assist in our therapeutic riding lessons by supporting our riders.  Sidewalkers offer physical support to help the rider maintain their balance by walking and occasionally jogging alongside the horse and rider. Sidewalkers must attend a 2 hour training prior to volunteering.

Volunteers participating in the Therapeutic Riding Lesson program at Dreams on Horseback are a very important part of making dreams come true for our riders and our programs.  Consistency and continuity are important.  Our riders, instructors, and other volunteers depend on one another to make sure that the lessons can run smoothly.  It is important that if you are unable to attend a class, you will contact the PATH certified instructor as well as the Volunteer Coordinator prior to your absence and give them as much advanced notice as possible in order to allow them to find a substitute volunteer to cover your absence.

It is imperative for your safety, the safety of other TRL volunteers, participants, and the safety of the horses that you follow all directions and safety regulations any time you are on the property of Dreams on Horseback.
