Tallest horse at the Michigan City barn.

This is a mostly outside (or in a barn) job, so it is easy to maintain social distancing. Masks are required if social distancing cannot be maintained.

* Horse feeding shifts are ~7-9 a.m. and ~3:30-5:30 p.m. every day (on-the-job training provided). Volunteers may choose their day/time. A commitment of one shift per week is requested. Feeders need to be at least 16 years old & wear closed-toe shoes.

* There are also opportunities for and facility/grounds maintenance. This would be less often than feeding shifts & can work around volunteer schedule.
