Dear Prospective Volunteer,
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Spirit Open Equestrian Program. Please find out more about our mission at our website, and submit a Liability Release Waiver on line if you want to start or visit us. When you come the first time, please, bring signed a hard copy of the Registration Form.
The Volunteer Manual on the website describes the role of the most popular positions of Leaders and Sidewalkers. We need volunteers year-round, with occasional breaks and make-up weeks. We need Leader and Sidewalker volunteers during lessons, year round, but we have many different options for those who want to help. Please, see the attached list of our available volunteer positions. *
When you arrive, please wait to be officially and safely greeted. Only registered Staff and Mentor Volunteers and Mentors-in-Training (under supervision) should approach horses to groom and tack. Only Instructors can allow anyone else to work with the horses, based on training level and time spent in the program. Please, help us keep our program safe and our horses happy and calm. Do not try to approach them without staff supervision.
Make sure to look HERE or Facebook for news, the schedule, and cancellations; and sign up for Rainedout.com (see more at Cancellation page)
Thank you and welcome!
