About

Barn Assistants

Volunteers can perform a variety of barn chores that are essential to the smooth operation of our program.

  • Feeding: Each of our horses is on a feeding program based on his/her specific nutritional needs. While our horses are turned out to eat grass, they must be brought in for supplemental feed. Hay must also be put out when needed and water checked.

  • Other duties: Mucking, sweeping, cleaning tack, washing horses, stripping stalls, and manure removal must be done regularly.

The lawn must be cut, beds weeded, fences mended, buildings painted, plumbing fixed, arena dragged, activity stations built, props designed, lighting replaced, leaves raked, drive leveled, holes filled, porches swept, and bathrooms cleaned.
