We are always happy to have people interested in volunteering!
We have a short orientation every Saturday morning at 8:45am in Shadow Hills. (Rain will normally cancel and we are closed for major 3-day holiday weekends.)
Volunteers must be at least 12 years old to volunteer. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you to sign some paperwork.
Closed-toe shoes (should be comfortable because there is a lot of walking), a shirt with sleeves (T-shirts are fine; No tank tops) and long pants are required. If planning to stay for the entire day (till approx. 2 – 2:30pm) then bringing water and a sack lunch/snack is recommended. Other days and times available for volunteering will be given at the orientation. (You do not have to stay the entire day unless you want to.)
We normally have volunteers assist the instructor with the children and horses, which includes, leading horses and spotting, which is walking alongside the horse to ensure child’s safety and position changes on the horse. Volunteers might also be asked to help groom horses, clean tack, gardening (such as raking leaves and weeding), etc.
If you have any other questions or need directions PLEASE CALL 818 – 767 – 6373.
Every Volunteer must first attend an orientation, which we have a short orientation every Saturday morning at 8:45am in Shadow Hills. (Rain will normally cancel and we are closed for major 3-day holiday weekends.)

There are also options to work in the afternoons during the week. Exact details can be given at the orientation, or if you call the office at (818) 767 - 6373.
