Congratulations to our United Way Volunteer of the Year

With more than 30 years of experience teaching horseback riding to children and adults, Jennifer Wayne brought her strong riding and horsemanship background to KART. Her impressive credentials and passion are evident in her role as a volunteer certified instructor. She assists with group and individual sessions and serves as a sounding board regarding participants, horses, and KART’s overall program. Jen has a focus on what is best for the horses and works on the horse/human interactions.

As the backbone of our program, our volunteers groom and tack the horses, lead the horses in the lessons, side walk next to the riders for safety, encourage the riders, fit riders with helmets, and assist in the classroom activities that support the riding lesson.

Riding therapy sessions are held at Worthmore Equestrian Center on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 am-1:30 pm for the schools, and 10 am – Noon for Camp Fairlee.

Not a horse person, but want to volunteer? Away from the barn, KART is always looking for people to help manage fundraising events and community outreach to help pay for the programs.
