Ways You Can Volunteer
Set Up Crew
Before classes we need volunteers to come help set the arena up using different objects that are needed for classes. Generally on Saturday mornings from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM.
Horse Leaders and Side Walkers
All Lessons in Sessions 1 and 2 need Horse Leaders to help the Veterans with connection to the horse and horsemanship skills. Some Veterans will need Side walkers for some lessons in Session 2. There is special training for these positions.
Clean Up Crew
After classes we need volunteers to help put away objects used in classes and to make sure the arena and the tack room is cleaned and orderly for the next session. Generally this help is needed on Saturday afternoons from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM.
General Barn Maintenance
We need volunteers to make sure the barn stays 100% safe for clients, horses, and staff. This can mean mucking stalls and feeding the horses or fixing anything that might need repair. Volunteers will also make sure gates are always locked properly and fence lines are in good condition.
Special Events Helper
We need volunteers to help at WHTR's information booth for any upcoming special events. You will be asked to do many different jobs such as greeting people as they walk in the door, help set up and take down decorations, and/or help out at WHTR's information booth at shows.
