A weekly shift can be chosen or our hours can be flexible and based on a fill-in basis for when you have availability to come out.

Current weekly shifts are:

  • Mondays 1pm-3pm
  • Thursdays 9am-12pm
  • Thursdays 10am-1pm
  • Fridays 1pm-4pm

*Covid-19 precautions are in place:
  • masks are required in the barn for staff, volunteers, and visitors when the arena is closed and when social distancing is not possible
  • temperature scans are required at the beginning of each shift and recorded on a paperclip with pre-screening questions
  • we have surgical masks, gloves, face shields, and protective eyeglasses available for volunteers to use
