All those wishing to handle a horse in any capacity as a leader in lessons/sessions, barn help, hill walking, exercise riding, etc. must complete a "Taking the Lead" training. This one and a half-hour training consists of watching a short video and discussion, as well as hands-on practice in the barn. Please remember to wear closed-toe, closed-heel shoes and comfortable clothing. You are welcome and encouraged to bring a bottle of water and snack! For more information on what to expect, please reference the volunteer information page.
