Reins of Life, Inc., is offering new volunteer training on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at their Michigan City barn. Volunteers do not need to have any previous horse experience and must be at least 13 years old.
At the training, you will learn about Reins of Life and their various therapeutic horseback riding programs, all of which serve children and adults with disabilities. Some of the programs include private and small group riding lessons, an interactive vaulting program (think gymnastics on a horse), a school program, addiction services, and a veterans’ program.
Volunteers will learn how to sidewalk, providing the right amount of support for each rider, as well as how to assist a rider using a ramp for mounting. The training will also teach Reins of Life’s preferred method of leading a horse.
People over age 16 can volunteer to feed the horses. There are volunteer opportunities every day of the week to fit anyone’s schedule!
If you would like to become a volunteer at Reins of Life, please join them on Thursday, June 6, from 5:30 to 8:30 CST at their barn: 9375 W 300 N in Michigan City. It is located south of I-94 and half a mile east of the Harley Davidson on Hwy 421.
Please call or text Marilyn at 219-877-7719 if you plan to come.
