Position Description

NOTRA’s spring 2021 Therapeutic Riding Program is tentatively planned for April 19 to June 7, 2021. Students will have an opportunity to be a Lead Walker or Side Walker for one of our children or adult riders living with special needs. No horse experience is necessary. Training will be provided. Also assisting with farm chores like mucking out paddocks, feeding or grooming the horses, fixing fencing etc. will also be available. Please note, this is an outdoor field experience. NOTRA could also use assistance with building a 2021 marketing and fundraising strategy for a not-for-profit organization for those students who would prefer to work inside.
