Horse Leaders \ Grooms

We need people to lead our ponies for our weekday equine programmes.  Should be calm, and confident around horses, preferably an experienced horse person, but we will train the right person\people.  We need people over 18 yrs old 

Are you experienced with horses, but no longer have your own? Here's the perfect opportunity to get your horse fix, without all the time and expense. Are you a calm, confident person, who has dealt with other animals, but not horses? Here's an opportunity to get to know horses, and help your local community. 

Many of our equine programs require a person to lead the pony.  The person must be able to independently control the pony, leaving our coaches free to concentrate on lessons with the student.  We will teach you exactly how to lead our ponies, and we constantly update the training of our horses to ensure our volunteers are safe and able to handle them easily. 

Communication is key,  a horse leader must be able to communicate well with the rest of the team to ensure the safety of clients, and staff. 

Can only offer an hour? Please apply - we value everyone's contribution, and would rather have someone who can offer an hour once a fortnight, than no one at all.
