July 27 - Aug 1, 2015

There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer next week as we will be extremely shorthanded. Lessons are thirty minutes long. We need help each day with the following days and times requiring additional help.
Tuesday 10:00-12:00
Wednesday 9:30-3:00
Friday 9:30-3:30

If you haven't volunteered this summer or if you can add an extra day or an extra hour next week would be great! Volunteer for all or any part of the day. I know our riders and staff would truly appreciate it.

If you know of anyone who would like to volunteer bring them with you or send them up to the barn and we'll get them started.

CHAMP is the success it is today thanks to our dedicated volunteers who help us change lives one ride at a time!

Thank You.
