Learn all about horses while volunteering for a responsible rehoming organization. This is the starting point for every new recruit. All prospective volunteers attend a VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION. Currently via ZOOM
After orientation, you will get your schedule for the next 30 days considering our open shifts and your availability. We have shifts weekdays and weekends.
Try us for a month, if you feel it is a good fit, then we can see how, going forward, you can become a permanent volunteer!
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 for free.
What if I am seasonal? We still would love to have you! Seasonal is different for each person though, some is a month, some 3 or even 6. We can. determine on a case by case basis how you can be here to help! We often do events in the winter season and fundraisers that are great if you are here for a short 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 have no staff, so it is all volunteer based. The people doing the training are also volunteers. 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!
After you hit SUBMIT, you are officially registered!
We will message you a confirmation email – usually within a few days
