Lanesborough: Equus Therapeutic to hold volunteer training day


Equus Therapeutic Inc. will hold a volunteer training day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, March 23, at its host barn, Wedgewood Stable at Wirtes Farm.

The training session for new and returning volunteers will run from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and will be followed by a fun games day.

During the training portion of the day, new and returning volunteers will be shown the proper ways to groom, tack, and lead the horses at three different stations, while a fourth station will demonstrate how to help riders mount.

During the games portions, volunteers are welcome to stay to help use their newly learned skills while the riders play simple games.
