LoveWay seeking volunteers for spring semester

Training sessions scheduled

MIDDLEBURY — LoveWay Inc., located near Middlebury, is looking for volunteers that are interested in helping with the spring semester of classes that begins the week of Jan. 28 and runs through May 4. Anyone who would like to volunteer can attend one of the following trainings: Jan 15. from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; Jan. 16 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.; Jan. 22 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. or Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m.

Volunteers will help once per week helping children and adults with special needs as they learn to groom, tack, and ride their horse. LoveWay’s riders require around 150 volunteers each semester as some may require the help from up to three people each lesson. Volunteers ensure the safety of the rider and assist them with balance, focus, or concentration skills as needed.

New volunteers that attend the training will be given a tour of the facility and learn how to groom, tack, and lead a horse in a hands-on learning environment. The training will instruct them on the proper procedures for safely working with the horses and what to expect when helping the students. Prior knowledge of horses is not required but those interested should be at least 16 years old. Volunteer opportunities are available during the daytime, evening, and on Saturday mornings.

LoveWay, Inc. provides therapeutic horseback riding for individuals with special needs in the Elkhart County area. If you would like to volunteer for the spring semester of classes, contact Angie Miranda, Volunteer Coordinator (574) 825-5666 or info@lovewayinc.org.
