Our program is extremely dependent upon the availability of volunteers. Many riders require extensive assistance in the riding ring, which is provided by the volunteers at NFTRA. Volunteers are trained (if they do not already have experience) to assist with the stable duties of grooming and tacking as well as the many ways of helping with our riders in the riding ring. It is our wish to have at least one family member assist in some way with our program.
There are a variety of areas to choose from including but not limited to the following: working with horses i.e. grooming, tacking, leading; side walking with riders; office duties i.e. filing; general repairs and maintenance and fundraising. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Without an adequate number of volunteers our program cannot function.
In addition a number of our volunteers are high school students, who give who spend their time and energy in service in this healthy, nurturing environment. Partnering with the school district enables students to achieve their work placement hours as well as learn about people living with a disability.
