The Blue Ridge Center for Therapeutic Horsemanship (BRCTH) is seeking interested persons to assist with the 8-week Fall Riding Session to begin the week of September 5th at Horse Patch Farm in Boyce, VA.   Lessons are scheduled weekday afternoons and Saturdays.   We are inviting enthusiastic and caring individuals to join our team.   Lesson volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.   Equine experience is required for the position of leader, and is preferred, but not required for the side-walker position.   Two training sessions are required of all lesson volunteers: an off-site training is scheduled for Wednesday, August 24th at 6:00 pm at the Millwood Community Center.   Informational materials will be distributed and refreshments will be served.  Trainees must attend ONE of the on-site trainings which are scheduled for 10:00 on Sat, Aug 27 or at 5:00 pm on Monday, August 29 and Wednesday, August 31 at the farm.   The on-site training will be very hands-on and cannot be attended without first attending the off-site training.   Please contact Margie Youngs at 540-533-2777 or e-mail at brcthinc@hotmail.com register or for more information.
