Volunteer Training
The Willow Farm Therapeutic Riding Program provides riding lessons to physically and/or mentally disabled children. The movement, emotional bond, and social environment strengthens the students physically, mentally, and emotionally.

-This orientation is for people who have never volunteered before and
would like to get involved-

We are looking for volunteers who can side walk for these riders. You
don’t have to be experienced with horses or children with disabilities to volunteer, however attending a New Volunteer Orientation is mandatory as well as being 14 years old.

Orientation includes a PowerPoint presentation, paperwork, and a mock
riding class. If you’d like to complete the paperwork before orientation please refer to our website: wftriding.org to complete and bring to orientation with you.

Scheduling will be offered at orientation but you can also look up our schedule on our website (wftriding.org) and Facebook page to get an idea in advance.

If you have any questions or would like to RSVP for the New Volunteer
Orientation please call/text Mara at 906-235-2552

Volunteer

Being a volunteer in our program not only makes it possible for our students to ride, but we have heard over and over from our volunteers how much they enjoy their time with the program. Join us to see the great smiles that our riders have while being with ‘their’ horse and let those smiles spread to you.

    Hello, I signed up my daughter, Erin Sarjeant, for step-up this fall. Somehow I failed to note the dates on my calendar. In my head I was thinking it was in October, but on your website I see the last session is September. Could you please let me the correct dates for Her session? Thank you.
