Our volunteers are wonderful and help our programs run smoothly!
We host volunteers who come on a regular basis as well as groups that come to help with special projects around the farm.
Volunteering on a regular basis:
Volunteers help get horses ready for sessions by grooming and tacking them. During sessions, volunteers lead the horses and are side-walkers for clients. A side-walker walks alongside the clients as they ride and provides support. Clients that are more independent may need someone to just walk alongside. Clients that need more support may require a side-walker to have their hand on their knee or provide back support. Volunteers often become a great source of encouragement for clients as well! After sessions, volunteers help cool down horses and put away tack. If you do not have horse experience, we will be happy to teach you about grooming, tacking, and leading!
If you would like to volunteer we ask that you fill out the Volunteer Packet and call 904-291-6784 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for orientation. Volunteers must be at least 13 years old.
Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page, too, so you can be up-to-date on upcoming volunteer orientations and trainings!
Sessions take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
Times vary throughout the year, based on the weather.
Volunteering as a group:
We have had scout troops, church groups, etc. come out to do projects. Some of these projects are clean up, some are beautification, some are building, and some are educational. If you have a group interested in coming out to the farm, please feel free to contact us, we would love to hear from you!
