Teaching Assistants at Grovespring Farm

Teaching Assistants are student volunteers who help with lessons. In order to become a teaching assistant a student must demonstrate that they:

  • Can catch, groom and tack a horse correctly, following the procedure we use here at Grovespring.
  • Can adjust stirrups, mount and dismount properly.
  • Know and can demonstrate the correct aids on the elementary level.
  • Know and use basic trail safety.
  • Teaching Assistants must pass the ANRC introductory level program ride and be working toward the novice level ride.

People need opportunities to have fun in the outdoors, work toward goals, learn new skills, be leaders, and feel good about themselves and their accomplishments.
