Volunteer

Serendipity Equine HavenWould you like to volunteer? Because of the size and accomplishments of our
organization, we are always looking for volunteers who share our dream.

Leaders:

  • The main responsibility of the leader is to control the horse during the lesson.

  • It is the leader who must help in guiding; stopping and starting without making the rider feel that they are simply a passenger.

  • The Rider must be allowed to do as much as possible with the leader helping only when necessary.

  • Leaders must be able to walk at a fast pace and jog intermittently during
    the lesson.

Side-Walkers:

  • Serendipity Equine HavenThe primary responsibility of a side-walker is to ensure the safety of the rider.

  • This is usually done by walking beside the horse’s girth with one arm poised at the rider’s thigh or ankle.

  • The degree of assistance from the side-walker will depend on the balance of the rider.

  • Side-walkers, who accompany poorly balanced riders, must be a good fit with the height of the horse and be in good physical condition.

We also need help with fund raising, barn maintenance, and many other projects underway now or planned for the future.
