The role of the ETTM is to provide excellent training for OBH horses on the ground and in the saddle. Each horse has a set of goals for the year to ensure that we are actively making progress as a team. It is the responsibility of the ETTM to ensure quality exercises with horses based on their particular needs and goals. Each team member will be required to meet with Destani twice a month to talk about how exercising is going and how to move forward. There is a schedule posted in the barn stating what the teams weekly tasks/goals are. If any changes occur, Destani will notify you with the changes that will be made.

About Olive's Branch Healing Inc

Location:

5 Bullfrog Road, Grantville, PA 17028, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to eliminate barriers preventing marginalized and urban communities from having access to horses. Our goal is to open doors to the equestrian community to all, thus creating a more inclusive world of horses. We create access to horses through volunteering, Equine Assisted Learning and Coaching, equine rescuing, equine leasing, and partnership with local individuals or groups/businesses.

Description

Olive’s Branch Healing Incorporated (OBH) is a non-profit volunteer and donor based horse rescue dedicated to diversifying the equestrian community while also ensuring proper care, nutrition, and training for rescue horses. Cultivating a safe and welcoming environment is at the forefront of our work as we seek to extend the hospitality of Christ to any who come through our doors.

Our volunteers are crucial because they are not only gaining experience with the horses, but life skills that can be applied to other areas of their lives. Volunteers keep the wheel of OBH going and offer the horses new interactions to keep them learning.

Our goal for the next year is to get solidified with 2 volunteers at each shift which generally run about 3hrs each. We are also needing volunteers to help with the business management aspect of things like marketing, volunteer coordinator, and more. In addition, we are looking for board members who are passionate about creating access to horses and agriculture related activities for marginalized and urban communities.

We are still very young (EST June 2020), but believe in the healing work the horses offer to us. We hope you will consider how you might get involved to create a more diverse equestrian world!
