Our volunteer Workers and Apprentices are a group of young people who all ride at the Guilford Riding School. Each Worker has two apprentices who assist them in getting the horses ready for the lessons, grooming and tacking, and their care and feeding after the lessons. All Workers and Apprentices are required to take and pass our unique Apprentice Program, giving them the skills they need to be safe and efficient working with our twelve School Horses.
Our 2017 Apprentice Course will be 6 consecutive Saturdays beginning September 30th. Cost is $150.00. For safety reasons, participants must be age 10-16, experienced riders, or having ridden at GRS for two riding series consecutively.
We pride ourselves on our family atmosphere, and insist that our clients and staff behave according to the old values our society seems to be moving away from. The sign above our door reads "Love, Laughter and Friends Welcome Here". If you have any questions during a visit or lesson, ask any of our workers -- they'll know the answer, or get it for you!
