Volunteer Helpers

Volunteer helpers are always in short supply.Many of our sessions do require three helpers to each rider/pony combination. If you are “horsey” perhaps you would like to help groom, tack up and lead a pony. If you are not perhaps you would like to help the riders with their hats, the walk to the mounting block or to accompany them on foot while they ride outside.

  • The minimum age for volunteers is 14 years old.
  • Our riding sessions run during school term times only, so we are not able to accommodate volunteers looking for placements during school holidays.  We are also not able to accommodate work experience placements or residential placements.
  • Please be aware that if we receive a volunteer application close to the end of a term, we may not be able to arrange for you to start until the new term.

If you do not hear from us within 2 weeks of posting your application form, please email at elisabethcurtiscentre@gmail.com and we will reply as soon as possible.
