Description

The role will involve making sure each client is wearing a properly fitted riding hat. At the first and last lesson of each 12 week block there is also paperwork to be completed for each rider. We also need you to ensure that carers, parents and siblings are not patting/touching the horses at the mounting block as this is a very delicate part of the lesson.
