In particular, we are seeking volunteers to assist our coaches each Tuesday and/or Thursday during the school term. All training is provided and you would be helping out with preparing horses for our riders and assisting our coaches on the arena (or on trail rides) during lessons.
We sometimes require volunteers on other days of the week who would be interested in helping out with the day-to-day maintenance of our horses and facilities. Or volunteers happy to do paddock maintenance on Tuesdays or Thursdays and rake up manure and branches out of the horses' paddocks whilst the horses are out and being used in the program. (See these relevant ads on volunteer website for more information.)
PLEASE NOTE: RDA is required to train and accredit volunteers prior to engaging them in their duties. Our next training day for volunteers assisting in our program will be held on Tuesday the 2nd of August 2022 from 8.30am - 3.00pm. Attendance of training days is a requirement. If you are interested in volunteering in our program, it is also a requirement to visit our centre on a Tuesday or Thursday during school term around 11am to see our program in action and find out what is involved in volunteering with RDA. Please contact us if you are interested in visiting us and to register for our upcoming training days.
