VOLUNTEER TRAINING DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED LATER
Due to the Open House, there will not be an awards banquet this year.

Our Program

Our instructor, Chris Baldwin, has attended courses at UW-River Falls and Cheff Center in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Students learn basic horse handling and care. Depending on their capabilities, riders are responsible for grooming and helping to saddle their mounts. A typical lesson consists of riding instruction, as well as horse-related games and activities. All of our equipment meets the safety standards required for therapeutic riding.

 

VOLUNTEER TRAINING:
We schedule 2 training sessions every year. If you cannot attend either session, we will have an experienced volunteer work with you the first couple of classes you volunteer.

 

This is a hands-on class including catching, haltering, & leading horses; safety rules when working around horses; grooming & saddling; and a mock class where we will show you the responsibilities of leaders and side-walkers. A few people may be asked to ride (if you would like to), during the training.
Wear “barn” clothes & sturdy shoes. You will get dirty & may be walking in mud and/or dirt. No sandals or slip on shoes.
During scheduled classes, please try to arrive 30 minutes before the first class to help groom & saddle the horses.
Every summer we try to offer a volunteer class to those who want to learn more horse handling tips & who want to have a chance to ride. Typically this is before the Tuesday classes.
Call Chris for more info, to sign up as a volunteer, directions, etc. – 715-853-6449.
Check out the calendar page for class session & event dates.
Also, read the safety rules page thoroughly. We are diligent about safety & hope everyone will do their best to practice these rules daily.
Our program depends on our amazing volunteer force. We cannot provide therapeutic horseback riding without a great team of responsible, reliable, & dedicated people. If you’ll be gone for a class, please ask another person to fill in for you. Without your presence, a rider may miss his ride that day.
