Help as a Side Walker

Side Walkers walk alongside participants as they ride. The purpose of a Side Walker is to help keep the rider safe and assist their participation. 

Become a Horse Handler

Horse Handlers guide horses while clients ride by leading or long-lining. A Horse Handler grooms, tacks and handles the horse during the therapy session or adaptive riding lesson.
