Windrush Farm is a nonprofit horse farm specializing in teaching physically, emotionally, and learning disabled children and adults to ride and work with horses.

About

Windrush volunteers are people who give their time and services to benefit our programming. Some bring skills in horsemanship, while others have leadership skills. Some merely bring understanding and acceptance, seeking fuller and more satisfying lives for themselves. Our volunteers reach out to others and help them improve their quality of life.

We serve over 600 clients a year and do that with the help of around 500 volunteers, so thank you for considering us as your volunteer opportunity!

We typically need volunteers Monday through Friday 8:30- 6:30pm.

Adequate support is critical in safely service our clients. We therefore request that volunteers directly involved with our program be willing to commit to a minimum of 1½ hours each week on the same day and time for the length of a session.
