Equestrian volunteers can work with Painted Turtle horses all year long. Our horses are onsite through out the year and we are looking for individuals that not only want to work with the horses but also work toward working with our campers. We have an exercise program, sidewalking and leading in lessons, and barn management as needed. Volunteers who work with the campers must be 19 years or older. All camp medical requirements must be met prior to working with campers.

For the exercising program you must have 2 years horse experience to include riding lessons and horse handling. A riding test is required prior to joining the schooling program. Our schooling program is for those that are 16 years and older. Parents must sign liability waivers and schooling hours can work around school hours. The Schooling program is designed to keep the horses in shape and will include not only ground work but mounted work as well. Schooling volunteers must pass a riding test, horse handling class and demonstrate maturity and responsibility at all times.
