Volunteers Needed!

Caring, dedicated individuals ages 14 years and older are needed to assist SPUR lessons. Volunteers participate in the therapeutic horseback riding lessons as leaders and sidewalkers. Arriving 20 to 25 minutes before the start of a lesson, volunteers groom and prepare the horse. They are also welcome to help with daily barn chores such as grooming, sweeping, cleaning tack, etc. Without them, we would not be able to accomplish all that we do.

Each year we honor two individuals, one adult and one junior, as volunteers of the year. The names of honored volunteers are inscribed on a plaque that is displayed in the waiting area for all to see.

Volunteer Requirements:
Must be 14 years or older
Must be able to walk for one hour and jog for short periods of time.
Must be able to support the weight of a rider when necessary.
