Help Change the Life of a Rescued Horse

Equine Outreach is extremely grateful for the volunteers who make our mission possible! We have needs for in-person and behind-the-scenes work. Take a look:


In-Person Care of the Horses and the Ranch


If you don't mind getting your hands (and clothes and boots!) dirty, we would love to have you at the ranch. All volunteers are required to attend our Volunteer Orientation and other hands-on training. Since training is a significant investment of our time and yours, we ask for a commitment of at least once a week for at least three months. Once you start bonding with the horses and they get to know and trust you, you will discover such a rewarding relationship! Teens are welcome to volunteer here too, but anyone under the age of 18 must have adult supervision while volunteering. We also love and welcome youth groups and other community groups who are interested in "working parties" which can be a one-time event or a recurring event.


Specifically, we need volunteers to:


-- muck the horse pens (every volunteer at the ranch is a mucker first before other duties). This means scooping poop to ensure horses have clean living quarters and are free from flies and other pests that waste attracts.

-- clean and fill water troughs

-- clean feeders and grain bowls

-- groom the horses

-- walk and help train the horses (after volunteering for several months first)

-- feed grain and hay for breakfast, lunch, or dinner

* No horse experience is necessary. We will train you to take on different roles and levels within the ranch.

** We ask for a minimum of two hours a week for at least three months. Training volunteers takes a lot of resources, and you will learn new and valuable skills, so please be sure you are ready to commit.

Behind-the-Scenes Work


If getting dirty and using a lot of physical energy is not your thing, no worries! We also have a need for volunteers to assist with administration tasks -- the things that keep us running.


Specifically, we need volunteers to:


-- assist with fundraising and sponsorships

-- help plan and work at special events

-- wash blankets, fill medicine packs, organize storage, etc.

-- data entry

-- other miscellaneous office tasks

​Ready to get involved? Great! Fill out the form below and we will be in touch.

* Our next volunteer orientation will be in February (date TBD). Questions? Contact us.
