Have fun with Children & Horses

May 7th, 2016

Location: 10157 Johanna Ave Shadow Hills CA 91040
Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : May 7, 2016
Last Day: Dec 17, 2016

We are always happy to have people interested in volunteering with our non-profit therapeutic vaulting program!

We have a short orientation every Saturday morning at 8:45am in Shadow Hills. (Rain will normally cancel and we are closed for major 3-day holiday weekends.)

Volunteers must be at least 12 to volunteer. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you to sign some paperwork. Closed-toe shoes (should be comfortable because there is a lot of walking), a shirt with sleeves (T-shirts are fine; No tank tops) and long pants are required. If planning to stay for the entire day (till approx. 2 – 2:30pm) then bringing water and a sack lunch/snack is recommended. Other days and times available for volunteering will be given at the orientation.

We normally have volunteers assist the instructor with the disabled children and horses, which includes, leading horses and spotting, which is walking alongside the horse to ensure child’s safety and position changes on the horse. Other activities might include: grooming horses, cleaning tack, gardening (raking, weeding, etc.), mailings, etc.

If you have any other questions or need directions PLEASE CALL 818 – 767 – 6373.

Thank you!
