About Side Walker

Dbc9a498 7b7d 4e1e a985 701cefc36afa

Many riders in Cheff programs need help to maintain their balance while sitting on the horse as they are learning to ride. The sidewalker’s job is to give the rider as much help in maintaining his or her balance on the horse as is needed. They also relay the instructor’s directions using verbal or physical assistance. One or two people may be asked to act as sidewalkers for a rider, depending on how much difficulty the client is having with balance.
