   About the Position

Impact Statement
Pride Stables offers therapeutic horseback riding to individuals with disabilities through our volunteer-based program. Volunteers assist riders with disabilities during our classes by leading the horse or side-walking along side the rider. We can't do what we do without our amazing volunteers!

Camp Pride, our fully integrated summer camp, starts the Week of July 1st and runs for 8 weeks.

Volunteers are needed to lead horses or side-walk for riders with special needs. No prior horse experience necessary. Volunteers must be 15 years old or older. As a leader you need the ability to understand & carry out direct instructions.
