Horseback Riding Program Helper

SPARC provides recreational opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. On Saturday mornings, children and young adults meet for SPARC's Horseback Riding Program, where they learn how to ride horses. Horseback Riding Program Helpers walk next to riders and hold their ankles or thighs during lessons to keep them from falling. They can also help lead the horses, assist riders with brushing the animals, or walk the horses from the stables to the ring.

All training will be provided; this is a great opportunity for volunteers who love animals to learn more about horses, how to saddle and feed them, and more!
