Washington Riding School
This position was a voluntary one.
I first heard of the Washington riding School through my youth worker.
The Washington Riding School specialises in the excerise and physiotherapy of disabled people.
I contacted the school out of interest initially, I was invited along for the day to have a look around.
I had a chat with the owners to see whether there was anyway I could become involved on a voluntary basis. The owners said that there were positions available, and for my work I would be awarded with rides.
I worked at the centre every Sunday at 8am - 5pm
My role consisted of:
- Mucking out
- Water replenishment
- Saddling up in preparation for users
- Supervisory spotting and horse leading
- Supervision of Instructors
