Volunteering


Interested in volunteering?  You’re in the right place!

There are so many ways that you can support Ride High. Whether it’s supporting the children in their riding and clubroom lessons, volunteering your time at one of our fundraising events or even helping with some administration in the office from time to time, we’d love to hear from you!

Children’s Volunteer

Every two hour session with the children consists of one hour riding and horse care and one hour of clubroom work. The instructors at the riding school teach the horse riding hour but our skilled staff run the clubroom sessions. These include various projects and creative activities.

The Children’s volunteer role involves welcoming the children, helping to find their equipment, getting them out into the stable yard for their lesson on time, assisting with riding lessons where appropriate (no experience necessary) and clubroom activities, giving the children refreshments and helping to see that they get their transport home.

We are looking for volunteers who can work with the children; helping to build their confidence and encouraging them to participate and have fun in clubroom sessions.

Our sessions run Monday to Friday during the day and early evening during term time and we also provide activity days and trips during school holidays.

Being a clubroom volunteer is a really rewarding experience – just ask some of our current volunteers!

To speak to someone about volunteering with the children please email childrensmanager@ridehigh.org or call 07507 308943 to speak to our Children’s Manager.

 

“I had a rewarding time at Ride High and saw many milestones in the development of the children in the 12 week programme. The children are a credit to Ride High and themselves. The change in the children has been something special to watch and be involved with”.

“Volunteering with Ride High has given me a new focus in life.  I feel privileged to have been able to form a bond with the group I support”.

Event Volunteer

None of our fundraising events could take place without the support of our wonderful volunteers.  From selling raffle tickets at our local quiz to Master of Ceremonies at our annual black tie ball, volunteers are at the centre of everything we do.

We have a range of roles so there’s sure to be something to suit you whether you have a couple of hours to spare every now and then, or you are looking to get involved with the regular fundraising team.

Alternatively, if you are thinking of organising your own event to benefit Ride High please do let us know as we may be able to support your event in some way.

If you would like more information about volunteering at an event, you can contact Helen at helendixon@ridehigh.org.
