Where Healing Begins!
Where Healing Begins!
Our volunteers are a critical necessity in the day to day operation of Solid Rock TRC, and a huge part of the healing processes for our clients.  Many volunteers of various talents are needed to keep everything running properly so that we may best serve our special clients and maintain a professional quality atmosphere to promote their growth.  It takes a lot of special talents to keep the wheels turning, some examples of which would include; Riding Lesson Volunteers who tack horses and work as leaders (horse-handlers) or side-walkers (providing verbal encouragement and/or physical support to the rider) throughout sessions. Barn Volunteers who assist with grooming and saddling horses for lessons. They also help with sweeping floors, cob webbing, cleaning water troughs, general cleaning, maintenance, painting, and other barn responsibilities. Carriage Driving Volunteers who commit to a lengthy training process. They learn how to assist with harnessing a carriage horse, long-lining, and some even drive a horse-drawn carriage. Equine Adventure Club Volunteers who work with summer campers participating in daily riding lessons, barn activities, art projects, nature activities and more. Barn/Classroom Lessons Volunteers who work with instructors and students in non-mounted activities, helping students learn about horse care and participate in art & crafts, and other educational activities. Maintenance Volunteers who help keep our facility running smoothly and looking good by assisting with cleaning, trash removal, mowing, weeding, light carpentry and other "handyman" type jobs. Office Volunteers who help with all types of projects, such as sorting and stapling, making phone calls, making newsletters, sending emails, addressing envelopes, filing and more. Special Event Volunteers who help plan, coordinate, and operate our fundraising events and manage other volunteers working on the day of the event. These are just a few of the special people and special talents that it takes for us to be successful in our important work.  We appreciate each volunteer's dedication, time, and energy, without which, very few of our riders would have the opportunity to mount up and "walk on”! No talent is to small!!  If you would like to volunteer to help, please feel free to contact Nicki at 330-990-1777 for more information.
