We need voluntary helpers for the weekly rides. You can be part of a team of individuals that come together to create an hour of fun and enjoyment for our riders through therapeutic riding. It is not always essential to be knowledgeable about horses, but helpful. There will always be someone to show you what to do.Training is provided. There are many different ways you can help – from coaching riders, to side walker, to fundraiser to making tea! Volunteer your legs and cheery personality to help make the learning experience fun.
You don’t need a particular instructor’s qualification to teach people with special needs. Training programmes, support and assessments are available. Groups generally meet during working hours, so to volunteer you must have time during the day.
We are very short of therapists who are needed all over the country. There are specific courses available for interested therapists. If you wish to volunteer and are aged between sixteen and seventy-five, are quite fit and want to know where your nearest group is, please contact Dilys Lindsay, Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or Roisin Henry, Field Officer at email@example.com
