Join our volunteer family at Madison Fields!

We are looking for volunteers to assist our dedicated barn staff at our beautiful Therapeutic Riding facility with afternoon chores/responsibilities. This is an opportunity to learn how to care for horses and spend time with our amazing herd.

Duties would include: water buckets, de-cobwebbing/cleaning up the barn, feeding horses, and some grooming/turning out horses for those comfortable.

Volunteers applying for this opportunity must have their own transportation to the farm. Our staff is knowledgeable and ready to teach individuals about horse care and barn maintenance!

If you like taking care of and being around animals, this opportunity is for YOU!

We can't wait to meet you!
