Volunteers are the heart and soul of each therapy session. Horse leaders and side walkers are needed for each treatment. It is helpful to have some knowledge about horses, however it is not essential. Volunteers go through a training session to educate them on policies and procedures. Safety is the top priority at all times and all staff must adhere to the safety regulations. Volunteers are always needed for classes, as well as to assist with horse training, horse care, and stall cleaning. Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age and will be assigned tasks based on their skill level. Contact us if you or someone you know is interested in volunteering. Help is needed for all classes, which are held Monday through Saturday. Commitment is only limited by the amount of time the volunteer is willing and able to give.
Many of the volunteers at Car-ynne 4 Kids have an extraordinary number of years of experience in the “horse world”. They dedicate numerous hours to the horses and the clients and are greatly appreciated. The volunteers explain that the reason they commit this time to Car-ynne 4 Kids is because of how rewarding it is to see the smiles on the clients’ and parents faces and that they love to see the progress that the clients make.
