Horse Powered Leadership: Youth Volunteer Program

Horse Powered Leadership is our volunteer program for youth ages 13-18. Here you will have the opportunity to not only give back to your community as a volunteer, but you will also have countless chances to grow as a leader and equestrian. You will be exposed to the wide variety of programs we offer at the equestrian center, learn about horsemanship and horse care from our knowledgeable staff, participate in leadership activities, and complete a range of volunteer projects.

Youth volunteers will get an opportunity to ride under close supervision on a occasional basis, however this is not a riding or lesson program and the large majority of their interaction with our horses will be on the ground.

See our volunteer page for more information and to learn how to apply to be a volunteer at Jester Park Equestrian Center: https://www.polkcountyiowa.gov/conservation/jester-park-equestrian-center/volunteer/
