Volunteers needed at Centaur Stride

April 3, 2014
Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

The Spring Sessions are about to start and riders with disabilities are patiently waiting for the weather to break and for the call to say were ready. Before we can schedule all the riders, we need to recruit more volunteers. It can take up to three people to help with each rider, as a horse leader or side-walker. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old and able to walk for at least one hour (easier as you hold onto the horse!) It's good exercise and feels great to be helping someone else. The added bonus is seeing the joy on the faces of the children you are helping! We especially need help on Saturdays, but also a few week nights. We are open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and need volunteers for any of the shifts within that time, even if only for an hour. Volunteers are scheduled so that we have the needed number of helpers per rider, under direct supervision of staff. Volunteers are trained hands-on, always paired with well trained volunteers or staff. For more information, visit our website at or call 326-4318. Volunteer registration forms can be found on the website.
