Experienced Horse/Barn Volunteers Needed

We need superstar volunteers who have ample horse experience to assist our Equine Specialist with basic barn chores. If you enjoy taking care of horses, we invite you to come and help care for a very special small herd of horses (and 3 donkeys) who change and save lives for a living.

Duties include:

  • Taking GREAT care of the herd of 4 legged therapists who save lives and help trauma survivors heal.
  • This includes feeding, grooming, filling water buckets, tubs, hay bags, stall cleaning, sweeping, stall picking, turnout/bringing inside. Cleaning manure/hay from drylot, indoor/outdoor arenas, and smaller paddocks.
  • The herd includes 4 horses, 3 donkeys. 7 stalls on shavings.

Barn volunteers are taught the patterns, the tools and the specific chores needed in the SRoL barn. All volunteers on a trial run in the beginning to determine fit.

SUMMER Nights (May through October):

Shifts are in the evening (approx. 7:30pm - 9:30pm) as the horses are inside the barn during the day and in turnout overnight.

There is also a shorter morning shift (8am - 9am) to bring horses back inside. Horses are brought inside, fly gear removed, checked over, fed breakfast, fill water buckets, complete 1st stall pick. If time permits, prepare paddocks for night turnout, and/or arenas for clients.

Because of the AMAZING work these horses do and the miracles they set forth, we are picky about their care. If you are detail-oriented, this will be a fit. :)

VOLUNTEER SERVICE HOURS COUNT:

We will verify/validate service hours for those who come here and give their heart and hard work to the herd that heals.

We hope to see you at the farm!
