General Information

This program is open to the general public. It is important that participants understand the risks of being with equines; therefore, the program includes a requirement that ALL paperwork be complete and submitted BEFORE a participant is allowed to interact with the horses. Participants must be registered prior to day scheduled. ALL youth under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a guardian.

Start schedule:

April 26th Help a Horse Day http://aspcapro.org/aspca-help-horse-day

CHECK IN TIME is 10 a.m. and it is very important to be on time so the group can move through the day.

Participation is for the full day. Lunch break is scheduled for 11:45 to 12:30 so be sure to bring your packed lunch!

Staff Supervision We are able to accept 4 participants for each staff member. So, space is limited. We cannot be flexible on this requirement as the staff member must be able to provide enough supervision to allow participants to complete grooming.

Other Information  Cell phones are not permitted in the area of grooming of the horses. This is for YOUR safety, it is very important to be focused on what you are doing with the horse. Please plan your day accordingly and plan any calls or messaging during lunch and breaks. If for some reason you have an emergency and need to use your cell phone, you are asked to leave the horse area immediately. Participants must use RVHR grooming supplies only. At no time will outside grooming items be permitted.
