Volunteers are the heart and soul of CARD.
They are an integral part of the program and of special events, without whom CARD simply could not operate.
We need you! Become a CARD volunteer.
At CARD, our volunteers play an important role in the operation of our riding program. We are fortunate to have a wonderful team of volunteers who dedicate their time! Our dedicated volunteers assist with grooming, tacking up, leading the horses and side walking with the riders during their lessons.
No horse experience? No problem. No experience needed! We provide training to all new volunteers.
Volunteering at CARD provides the opportunity to establish relationships with fellow volunteers, riders and horses.
Must be 13 years of age or older. We welcome high school students looking to complete community service hours.
Be comfortable around horses.
Reasonable level of fitness (i.e. be able to run alongside a trotting horse for 40 to 80 M).
Able to commit to one 2 to 4 hour time slot per week (or more if you wish!). There are 3 sessions per year of 9 to 11 weeks, and a 6 week Summer Session. We ask volunteers to commit to at least one full session.
All CARD volunteers are asked to submit a current (within the last 6 months) Vulnerable Sector Check.
