We are an active horse rescue organization that saves horses not only from abusive owners but from being sent to slaughterhouses. Horses come to us in need and we help restore them to health both physically and mentally. Positive human connection is a very important part of this restoration process.
Laughing Pony Rescue is looking for dedicated volunteers to help with caring for our rescue horses.
We are short of volunteers right now and could use people every day of the week for either the morning or afternoon shift.
The basic chores include:
- exercising/riding the horses (option only for reliable longterm volunteers)
- helping with therapeutic and beginners lessons
- enjoying the companionship of like-minded people and, of course, the horses!
What is in it for you?
learn (more) about horses and how to care for them
work with a team of passionate horse loving people of all ages
and of course get a lot of fresh air and a nice farmers tan!The morning routine starts at 7:45 and lasts about until around 1:00 (feeding, mucking, grooming, exercising and lessons).
The afternoon routine starts at 3:00 and usually ends around 5:00 (feeding, mucking, routine medical care).
Horse experience would be great but is not required as long as you are willing to learn. We are willing to teach!
