Join a crew, feed the horses, get some exercise, and spend time outdoors!

* Horse feeding shifts start at 7:00 a.m. CT and 3:30 p.m. CT every day (on-the-job training provided). Each shift takes 1.5-2 hours. You'll join a crew of 2-4 others. A commitment of one shift per week is requested. Feeders need to be at least 16 years old, wear closed-toe shoes, and dress for the weather. Chores include feeding & watering horses, mucking stalls, pushing wheelbarrow, throwing hay, haltering & leading horses, walking on uneven surfaces, & sweeping barn. If you don't have rubber boots, we have limited sizes to borrow when the pastures are muddy. No horse experience needed.

* There are also opportunities for facility/grounds maintenance which do not require a weekly commitment & work around volunteer's schedule.
