Accomplishing our mission to give old horses new lives wouldn't be possible without the generous contributions of our supporters. This Old Horse depends on volunteers to help maintain a clean, welcoming environment where the horses are well loved and well cared for. You are guaranteed to get exhausted and dirty, and in return feel the satisfaction of a job well done and the undying gratitude of your horse friends!
Fill out an application online by clicking the blue button. In that step, you will fill out an application, review and agree to the Stable Rules, sign a liability waiver and be directed to an orientation packet that will provide a basic introduction to the role and the barn. Once you submit your application, our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to arrange a tour and give you a preview of the various roles where you help is needed. If you like what you see, you will be encouraged to sign up for onsite training on the role you prefer. Once your training is complete, you will be directed to our schedule signup sheets to begin making a difference in the lives of the horses we love.
No horse experience is needed for many of the roles that are filled by volunteers. We welcome horse lovers of any experience level and have a welcoming group of staff, mentors and horses who will help you learn. We encourage families to volunteer together and children under 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult working directly with the child throughout the activity.
