Pony Power Therapies is a non-profit organization that uses horses and an accessible farm to enhance the physical, social and emotional well-being of children and adults who need extra support.

Pony Power is expanding its programs and we are looking for Farm Crew and Garden Volunteers. Below is a listing of various opportunities.

Garden Volunteers -
We have an interactive garden for our participants to learn farming, composting, and harvesting. We are looking for volunteers to help us maintain our garden.

Farm Crew Volunteers:
Paddocks-
Volunteers are needed for basic clean-up of horse paddocks.

Red Barn/Small Animals- Volunteers are needed for cleaning/maintenance of Pony Power’s Red Barn. Currently, two horses reside in our red barn and it is used for our non-riding programs. Volunteers also help clean and maintain the enclosures of our pigs, goats and chickens.

If you interested, please contact volunteers@ponypowernj.org or call our office 201-934-1001. You can also find more information about Pony Power Therapies on our website www.ponypowernj.org/lessons.
