This is an opportunity to get involved in all aspects of stable work - tacking, grooming, leading horses in the school or side walking with riders. Some riders need more assistance than others depending on their ability. It would be helpful if you have an outgoing personality and are able to adapt quickly to different situations. This is a wonderful rewarding opportunity for someone to help us continue to provide a high level of service for our clients. Volunteers will be invited for a short tour of the centre followed by a half-day induction the next week. (Angus border)
