Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Acceptional Riders program. Without their help, our riders would not be able to ride safely. Each rider may require up to 3 volunteers, one to lead the horse and two to side walk beside the rider to assist them to safely ride.
Volunteer orientation will be held Monday, April 20, 2020 at 6pm
If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering

When is Acceptional Riders?
Acceptional Riders' orientation April 20, 2020 at 6:00. Our first session starts April 27, 2020 at 5 pm 6pm or 7pm.This is a group activity, as each class can have up to 10 riders per class. Private classes are available upon request.
What to expect:
- Volunteer Leaders are responsible for directing the horse and following direction from the lesson instructor. Side walkers provide physical support and encouragement to the rider.
- You will be given a training session before starting.
- You will generally be assigned to the same rider each week in order to build confidence and trust with the rider.
- Group classes run in the spring and fall. Private sessions run year round.
Although preferred, no experience with horses or special needs is required to volunteer. We will train you, before your first day volunteering.
