Volunteers are the backbone of any therapeutic riding program. Without those dedicated people who come in all kinds of weather to help with horses and lessons and to offer their support and encouragement to the riders, the program would not be possible. For this reason, RIDE needs to rely upon many volunteers each day that lessons are scheduled.
There are usually four lessons in the arena at one time and four horses down getting tacked up so many volunteers are needed.
