I'm a Horse Person - How Do I Get Involved?
Experienced horse people have many opportunities in the PATH Intl. organization. They can help ease the workload of center staff members by helping with horse care, training, client sessions, supportive vet care, stable management, horse transportation and exercising. Often horse volunteers go on to become certified instructors after volunteering with a program. Check for a center near you to learn about opportunities to get involved.
Becoming a presenter on horse-related topics at regional national conferences is another great way for knowledgeable horse people to help further the quality of the industry. Check the national conference page for opportunities to present a paper or lead a workshop.
