How Can I Volunteer?

Interesting in helping with Rolling Ridge Riding?  We have several different ways you can help out!  Every therapy ride requires the following volunteers for each rider:

Sidewalker (2)

Sidewalkers walk along side each horse while a child is riding.  Sidewalkers interact with the children, providing encouragement and assistance.

Horse leader

Leaders guide horses around our riding ring, controlling the speed and direction of the horse.  Leaders will also interact with the children riding.

Educator / Therapist

Teachers and rehabilitation therapists are stationed around our riding ring during each therapy ride, helping children learn and develop skills as they ride

Medical Personnel

EMTs, Nurses, Doctors are always welcome to come out to support the therapy rides.

Community Volunteers

Community Volunteers are needed to help set up activities in the ring; put out parking cones; assist with parking; driving the shuttle (an ATV) to help riders and parents reach/depart the riding ring; to assist in activities outside of the riding ring; to assist with riding helmets/safety belts; reading and riding coaches to help direct activities outside the riding ring; receptionist for rider check in; safety monitors and many more!!!
