Talbot Special Riders would not exist without the help of our wonderful volunteers.
Except for one certified instructor and a therapist, the entire program is run by a dedicated group of volunteers.
Volunteers do not have to be “horse people” or have experience with disabled persons in order to help. Training is provided.
You are welcome to observe the program to see what it is all about. We have constant turnover, so we are always seeking new help.
Volunteers are needed to assist in these ways:
- Horse Leaders: Leading and grooming and tacking the horse.
- Sidewalkers: Welcome our riders and get them ready to ride. They walk alongside the riders giving directions, support, etc.
All sessions are held at:
6292 Statum Road
Preston, MD 21655
Volunteers select the time frame that best fits their schedule. We have a minimum age of 14 for volunteers.
You will learn to appreciate our disabled riders, as well as make new friends. You will also gain tremendous satisfaction from watching the riders improve physically, mentally, and emotionally. Best of all, you will be making life brighter for these special people.
SPRING SESSION BEGINS APRIL, 2017!
