Where do you start?
We care for injured ex racehorses, which involves mucking, filling and cleaning waters. As volunteers learn and are able to consistently stay on a regular schedule, there are opportunities to have roles of greater responsibility such as feeding, hoof care, grooming and bathing, and more. We have a farrier team, evacuation team, office management team, adoption team and training team. Training is available to local, year round volunteers that demonstrate their commitment.
What if I am seasonal? Welcome to Seasonal Saturday’s! Once a month we host work days for our Seasonal Volunteers so they can still help the horses! We still would love to have you! We often do events in the winter season and fundraisers that are great if you are here part time!
What if I can’t commit?
Help comes in many forms, sponsoring a horse is a great way to help care for a horse if you can’t physically be here!
Above all the horses require the very best care and handling. Everything here involves training, We rely heavily on team work, having a teachable spirit, and putting the horses care first.
This is a place to help horses heal and get homes. We are so hopeful that you appreciate our mission and chose to join us!
