Volunteer Opportunity

Offer Valid: 06/24/2019 - 11/01/2019
Help a rider with special needs during their riding lesson!
The goal of Northland Therapeutic Riding Center is to improve the quality of life of persons with special needs, and create a sense of hope for the future. Therapeutic Riding uses equine-oriented activities to positively impact the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being of people of  all ages with special needs.  

Come out and learn about what we do and the ways you can get involved in serving our riders!

 
  • Sidewalkers – Assist riders in the saddle by supporting them physically or assisting them cognitively. No horse riding or handling experience is needed, but you must be comfortable around horses. All new volunteers are generally started as sidewalkers, but may take on other tasks once they’ve become more familiar with our program.  

  • Horse Leaders – Lead a horse for a rider during classes.  You must have some experience handling horses on the ground to be a horse leader. Additional training is required and provided.

  • Horse Handlers – Grooming, tacking, and exercising horses before classes begin. You MUST have riding experience to serve as a horse handler. Additional training is required and provided.

  • On-call Class Volunteers - We OFTEN need substitute side walkers and horse leaders for our regular class volunteers.  If for any reason they cannot make it to their scheduled time slot, we need volunteers who we can call as fill-ins.  This is a great option for those who want to come be involved but cannot make a regular weekly commitment.

  • Fundraising - We are always in need of volunteers to help with the planning of NTRC's fundraising events such as Evening of Hope, Run so they can Ride 5K, Murder Mystery Dinner and more. We normally meet once a month, but this may be more around major events.

  • Special Events - Outside of planning, we also need volunteers for occasional NTRC events such as our annual Horse Show, fall festivals, parades, etc.  We also rely on volunteers for office assistance, photography, and social media surrounding these special events.

  • Volunteer Outreach - We need volunteers who can assist with outreach such as putting flyers around key areas, and help at informational booths.
