EQUESTRIAN VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center is currently seeking volunteers for our upcoming Summer Session (June 5 – July 29).
You do not need to be horse savvy to volunteer at PPTRC! You just need the desire to help an amazing group of people with special needs! All volunteers 14+ are welcome. PPTRC provides specialized equine activities to enhance individual wellness. We are a premier accredited program through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (International) ensuring safety and quality services.
Equine assisted activities and therapies is a unique approach to achieve health and wellness goals. Physical, Occupational, Speech, and Mental Health Therapists partner with horses to assist their clients in their specific area of need.
Volunteer opportunities at PPTRC include:
SIDE WALKERS: responsible for the safety of riders. You help get horses ready for class and assist your rider with helmeting and mounting. You guide your rider safely as he or she gets to know and care for the horse. During the class itself, your job is to ensure the client stays on the horse safely.
HORSE LEADERS: responsible for the horse’s safety and control at all times. You reinforce the rider’s signals to the horse and maintain proper distance from other horses in the class while walking, changing directions, and passing. This role requires horse handling experience. Training opportunities are offered often!
BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING AT PPTRC:
* A chance to change lives through the amazing attributes of the horse
* Working with the incredible animals that make up the PPTRC herd
* Reduced fee riding lessons after volunteering with PPTRC for an entire session
