About

Locket's Meadow Farm (part of Rescues Who Rescue) is in great need of people with horse experience who can lead, exercise, ride, groom, and help care for some of our 35+ horses. Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds, many including abuse and neglect situations, and we are looking for people with good horse skills that can help to give our horses the attention and exercise they need and deserve. You must be able to lead, saddle, ride, and/or groom horses without training or oversight. If you've got the experience and prefer not to ride, but can assist with the other tasks, that works too! However, all volunteers must get approval of one of our directors or managers and adhere to the policies we have in place for how our horses are trained. We also ask that horse handlers help with the feeding, watering, and cleaning associated with the horses. Just think - most people have to pay to have this kind of interaction with horses... here, all we ask is that you visit consistently and help with their care!
