We take volunteers from the age of 13 yrs old and older. Volunteers under the age of 16 must have a parent with them for their first three shifts, and then will be evaluated to see if they can volunteer on their own. All volunteers will go through a short on-site orientation by one of our staff members on their first day of volunteering.
Shifts are 7 days a week from either 10am – 12 noon or 2pm – 4pm. Some volunteers stay for both shifts with a break for lunch in the middle of the day. All volunteers are encouraged to volunteer 8-10 hours a month. After you have volunteered for a month, you may get the opportunity to work with the horses under the instruction and guidance of a trainer.
