VOLUNTEER WORKSHOP March 16, 2019
Ridin' High is a fantastic place to volunteer! We have a great atmosphere--and you'll be making the difference in the lives of the people we serve. We may be prejudiced...but we're pretty sure we have some of the best volunteers around.
To familiarize you with Ridin' High, we are hosting a Volunteer Workshop at our facility (5722 Long Creek Road, Morristown, TN) March 16, 2019. This is a fun workshop in which we'll present information on volunteering at Ridin' High. You'll also get a chance to practice working with the horses. The workshop is for both new and experienced volunteers. The only criteria for being a volunteer is that you are at least 14 years old and have a desire to help others. We'll train you on everything else.
Not familiar with horses? No problem! We'll train you on what to do. We also have a number of non-horse volunteer activities. We'll go over all the possibilities, introduce you to the facility, and give you a chance to practice some hands-on skills.
Although it's helpful for us to know how many people are coming, you don't have to register--just show up! Please make sure to wear sturdy (safe) shoes. If you need directions, click Here. If you have questions, please call 423.585.0331. You can also visit the "Volunteer" page for an application form. Hope to see you there!!
