ORGANIZATION: Laughing Pony Rescue

  • 1024 people are interested
Get your ponies in a row!
... and come visit us!

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:

  • feeding
  • cleaning
  • grooming
  • exercising/riding the horses (option only for reliable longterm volunteers at morning shift)
  • helping with therapeutic and beginners lessons
  • enjoying the companionship of like-minded people and, of course, the horses!

What is in it for you?

You will...

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!

This schedule is subject to change depending on the time of year and other conditions:

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 2:30 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!

Please fill out an online application (a Google Form) to contact us and a volunteer coordinator will get in touch with you by phone. Application link: https://forms.gle/k4reXdAEAD2Adcyn6

About Laughing Pony Rescue



Mission Statement

Laughing Pony Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose purpose is to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted and abused horses of all breeds. Our long term goal is to have a facility where disabled children and adults can take part in therapeutic riding programs featuring rescued horses.


Laughing Pony Rescue currently takes care of over a dozen rescue horses on their property, which need volunteer's assistance to help clean, feed, and exercise daily. This will also help us continue to rescue horses from neglectful or harmful environments so we can train, rehabilitate, and place them in a safe rescue, ranch, or forever home.




We'll work with your schedule.
