Assist with Fall Sessions

General Information

The Fall 2017┬áSession is 11 weeks in duration beginning the week of August 28th and ending the week of November 6th. No activities will take place on October 12th and 13th due to Auburn University’s Fall Break.

The first few weeks will consist of volunteer training. Super excited kids of all shapes and sizes will participate the remaining 8 weeks.

Children and their families join us once a week to participate in a group with a maximum of 6 children. We ask our volunteers to commit to at least once a week.

Weekly Riding Sessions:

Mondays: 2:00 – 6:30 pm
Tuesdays: 2:00 – 6:30 pm
Wednesdays: 2:00 – 6:30 pm
Thursdays: 2:00 – 6:30 pm
Fridays: 2:00 – 5:30 pm

Please make note on your volunteer form which day you would like to volunteer.
Thank you for making this commitment to our kids!
