Team Work makes the Dream Work
There are so many ways you can use your personal talents to help out at Rein and Shine!
Therapeutic Riding Lesson
- Horse Handling
- Side Walkers
While Horse Handlers should have some horse experience because they will be responsible for preparing the horse before the class, Side Walkers do not necessary need that experience, but should be ready to give physical and emotional help to the students during their lesson.
All Lesson volunteers will go through General Orientation and Training Sessions. They will be introduced to the Barn and the facilities as well as learn of the Barn rules, policies and procedures. After the overview of the Barn, our Volunteers will be welcomed to shadow a Therapeutic Lesson. They will learn the proper positions for side walking and then will be able to practice it hands on as they are integrated into the Therapeutic Lesson.
Further training is required for the those interested in Horse Handling.
We ask that all Therapeutic Lesson Volunteers be available the same time and day each week.
- Volunteers work directly with barn staff to help feed and care for the horses and the facility. Volunteers in the equine program should be willing to commit to a specified, consistent period of time each week and must first attend a general volunteer orientation and training session.
- Any assistant with maintenance of data, word processing, and other support tasks.
Special Events and Fundraising
- Volunteers who possess technical/professional skills that could benefit Rein and Shine. Such as photography, graphic design, computer knowledge, etc.
Anyone who posses these qualities is asked to please contact the office as we are always looking to grow as a program and to develop into the best program as possible.
