Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Freedom Horse. Volunteers are the reason we can do what we do!
Our program is for riders with disabilities, including children, young adults and adults.
Volunteers assist in the classes by leading a horse or sidewalking. Helping to groom/tack horses. Help may also be needed in the barn and fields, cleaning stalls and removing manure from the fields (if time allows and it is something you would like to do).
A comfort level around horses and the desire to help riders with a disability get the most out of each lesson. Volunteers also need to be able to walk for 45 minutes or longer (with some stops along the way) outside.
It is important for you to understand that leading a horse or acting as a sidewalker is strenuous and can include significant time jogging in variable arena footing. If you have any doubts about your ability to perform these duties for up to an hour at a time, there are several other extremely useful volunteer jobs available to you that would be less physical.
