Horse Care
 

Most of our horses have been abused, abandoned, or discarded. They deserve the best we can give them.  The horses can never get enough attention, whether it’s through grooming, hoof care, body work, handling, cleaning stalls, socializing, or simply getting a little love.  We are looking for experienced horse handlers.  

 

Because we operate on private residential property, we do not have an “open barn” policy.  We schedule all volunteers and visits by appointment only.


Facility Maintenance
 

There is always something that needs to be done around the Sanctuary barns,

 paddocks, or pastures.  If you can help with minor repairs or maintenance such as fence and gate maintenance, structure repairs, feeder/waterer repairs, sweeping out the stalls, blowing the barn areas, or other unexpected repairs, we could use your help.  We also need occasional help installing new fencing, re-configuring panels, setting things up, redoing the stall mats......

Please fill free the reach out to us and share with us your talents
