In particular, we are seeking volunteers to assist our coaches each Tuesday and/or Thursday during the school term. All training is provided and you would be helping out with preparing horses for our riders and assisting our coaches on the arena (or on trail rides) during lessons.

We sometimes require volunteers on other days of the week who would be interested in helping out with the day-to-day maintenance of our horses and facilities. Or volunteers happy to do paddock maintenance on Tuesdays or Thursdays and rake up manure and branches out of the horses' paddocks whilst the horses are out and being used in the program. (See these relevant ads on volunteer website for more information.)

PLEASE NOTE: RDA is required to train and accredit volunteers prior to engaging them in their duties. Our next training days for volunteers assisting in our program will be held late January/early February Attendance of training days is a requirement.
