New Volunteers - Mandatory
Returning volunteers are welcome also!
8:00a.m. to 4:30p.m. starting at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Afton

Plan to spend an all-day introduction to the fun (and responsibility) of RVR. The day will begin at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Afton at 8:00a.m. for a light breakfast. Indoor training will begin at 8:30a.m. and continue until mid-day, when lunch will be provided. After lunch we will go 1 mile down the road to RVR’s property at 2007 Neal Avenue South for outdoor training, until 4:30p.m. You’ll learn about therapeutic riding, the children and adults we serve, and the horses who help us. Get ready for a full and active day, including hands-on practice with our therapy horses.

Note: Indoor training at the church will happen rain or shine, no matter what the weather!  In the afternoon we will be outdoors.  Please dress appropriately: layers, closed toe shoes (preferably heavy duty shoes/boots), sunglasses, hat, jacket, etc.
