Just Come for One
Every Courage Reins rider is surrounded by a supportive team of friendly faces they know and trust. To make this possible, we’ve introduced the Just Come for One volunteer system—one lesson, with one student, just once a week. This creates a safe, loving, consistent space where our riders feel comfortable. Want to be someone’s One? We’d love to have you as one of our Regular Volunteers! Worried you don’t have time to make such a long-term commitment right now? We have awesome Short Term volunteering options as well.
Work with one client, in one lesson, one time per week (at a minimum). Ready to commit? Excellent! Follow the steps below to see if you qualify:
Short Term Volunteers
We happily welcome one-time volunteers. Working on a merit badge? Have a school assignment or graduation requirement? Maybe you simply want to do something wonderful and worthwhile? No matter your reason, we have a way you can help. To determine your best fit, please complete the following steps:
- Download and complete the Short-Term Volunteer application form.
- Review the age appropriate trainings and take the quiz that coincides with your area(s) of interest. (All quizzes listed below.)
- Contact us to arrange time for first visit. (Note: Bring your completed application and quiz to this visit.)
We proudly offer comprehensive volunteer training and a certification program to ensure safety standards for our horses, riders, and volunteers. All volunteers are required to participate in this program and demonstrate a proven ability to follow the guidelines outlined. It’s a fun experience that will teach you valuable techniques and methods used by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH). Once your volunteer application is received and approved, you will receive information on a training schedule.
