As a horse leader you will be required to lead our horses and enable our riders to learn skills and have fun. You may also support and encourage riders and assist them with the activities they need to do. This is a hands on role so we need people who are confident leading a horse. We require the leader to be able to listen to directions from our horse manager and coach, to ensure the safety of themselves, the horses and others around them. This is a very important role and we need more people to help so that we are able to involve more children and young adults.
Our wonderful horses are all calm, gentle and easy to lead - they are a pleasure to work with.
