This class is mandatory for everyone who wants to volunteer with us or attend further classes at our ranch. Learn about Summit Valley Horse Center, safety around horses, horse/human communication, take a tour of the Ranch and have hands on interaction with our beautiful horses and mini-horses. We do not ride during Orientation. All experience levels, from people who are unfamiliar with horses to experienced horse handlers, and all ages, from 12 to 95+, are welcome and will enjoy this class. Please wear long pants, boots and other suitable attire; all participants under 18 must wear a helmet, we have some you can borrow but if already have one please bring it. Cycle/work gloves are also great for handling ropes.
Children Volunteers: Children ages 12-18 are encouraged to volunteer at Blue River Horse Center. 4-12 year olds can only work with mini horses and ponies.
Children ages to 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. If a child under 12 would like to volunteer, the parent(s) must also sign up as a volunteer and go through the training program as a family. We reserve the right to limit the number of under 12's in a class.
Children ages 15 to 17 can sign up and take the volunteer training class without a parent or guardian. Once they have taken the first class they may volunteer, if they have an adult volunteer present who has agreed to supervise him/her while the child is volunteering, until he/she turns 18.
