Volunteer Levels

A volunteer must be signed off at each level before advancing. 

To be signed off, the volunteer must demonstrate mastery of that skill.

Level 1

Groomer

(grooming is a vital piece of keeping the Strides horses healthy; learn the Strides way to keeping our horses clean)

Level 2

Horse wrangler

(learn how to catch, halter, and lead a horse -- the Strides way)

Level 3

Horse leader

(Adaptive Riding & Hippotherapy)

(learn advance horse leading skills to maximize the benefits to the client & improve your relationship with the horse)

Level 4

Horse exerciser

(for those already on this team, learn how to complete ground work, joining up, review exercise program.  for newbies, demonstrate your riding skills to be approved as a member of this elite team)

What is your Status?

Other Areas of Skill

Pen Cleaning

(learn the dirty details on how to properly clean the horse pens to help keep our 4-legged friends healthy)

Horse Feeding

(a very important job in deed!  Our 4-legged friends need breakfast & dinner [and sometimes a few snacks].  Come learn all the details about how we feed.)

Facilities

(Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was Strides.  Facilities Team Leader Bob needs to build a crew to help him complete the long "Honey-Do" list the Strides Admin has given him in order to make Strides the best it can be for our community.)

Fundraising

(this is a crucial piece of the puzzle.  without donations & fundraising, Strides cannot run.  Team Leader Tori needs a big crew, too, to complete her list.  Love Strides's mission, but intimidated by horses?  fundraising may be just for you!)
