Volunteer Training

Posted by Collin Provenza

Jennifer Yudow will be holding a volunteer training session on Sunday, October 18th from 4:00 PM-5:30 PM at Bailey’s Farm, which is located in the Julington Creek Plantation area at 2202 Bishop Estates Road.

We will do a comprehensive training session covering different types of equine assisted therapies, the roles of side-walkers and horse handlers (our two main volunteer roles), important safety tips and other information about Horse Sense and our operations.  In addition, there will be a hands on portion of the training. We will groom and tack the horses and practice the roles of side walkers and horse handlers. Please wear closed toed shoes.

Please see the links below for the volunteer forms that need to be completed and brought with you to the training session.

Please contact Jennifer Yudow at (904) 349-0963 if you have any questions or to RSVP to attend training. Also, feel free to invite others to come out as well and participate in volunteering.

There is always lots of activity going on at the farm , so sometimes there is very limited parking.  I will  have a sign to indicate where to park or will have someone directing parking.

We look forward to meeting you or welcoming you back to our farm! Thank you form your interest in Horse Sense and Sensitivity.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call (904) 349-0963.

New Scholarship Application

Posted by Collin Provenza

The Board of Directors at Horse Sense and Sensitivity believes in making therapeutic riding available to as many deserving persons as possible, understanding that our services are not typically covered by insurance. Our scholarship program is made possible by generous donors to help participants needing financial assistance. These need-based scholarships are available on a limited basis, and are awarded in January and July.


Each scholarship will be valid for a maximum of 8 lessons to be used within a 6 month period. After the 8th lesson, participants may reapply for another scholarship. To be eligible for a scholarship the participant must submit the application 30 days prior to starting the lessons and qualify for free school lunch and/or be currently receiving Medicaid.”

All volunteers are expected to attend a scheduled volunteer training.   At the training one of our instructors and some experienced volunteers will go over safety rules and demonstrate side-walking and horse leading.  You will have the opportunity to practice these volunteer activities so wear comfortable clothes and covered-toe shoes.  Come prepared to ask questions, learn about therapeutic riding, get dirty, and have fun. All paperwork (see volunteer post below)  must be completed before volunteering in the classes.  These forms will be available for completion at the volunteer training, but if you can, please download forms from the website, fill them out, and bring them to the training.

A FALL VOLUNTEER TRAINING WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 9, at 4:30 P.M. AT 7125 GARDEN STREET.  For information contact the instructor, Sis Van Cleve-Miller, at 904-866-5171 or the volunteer coordinator, Peni Hufnagel at 201-675-4693.

If you are interested in helping with horse grooming and tacking before lessons, please tell the instructor who will arrange whatever additional training you might need.  Please note that you will need to arrive approximately 1 hour before a scheduled lesson to participate in this aspect of the program.
