At RDA Singapore, we welcome volunteers both as groups and individuals, and we are always looking for new volunteers to help with our horse-riding therapy sessions for those with disabilities. No horse experience is needed for sidewalks as training will be provided. We offer on the job training throughout the year as well as regular training programmes every quarter.
Volunteers need to be the minimum age of consent of 16 years old. Interested applicants below 21 years old will require parental consent. All volunteers for therapy sessions start off as a side-walker. As a side-walker, you will be an integral part of the weekly progress of the riders, providing physical assistance and emotional encouragement. During therapy sessions, you will walk beside the horse while supporting (both physically and mentally!) and interacting with the rider and facilitate therapy activities. As such, you need to be comfortable working with a person with disabilities and being around horses.
