How to Help

Equestrian Center Volunteers Needed

Do you love horses and have some time to volunteer at the Jester Park Equestrian Center?

We specifically need volunteers for the therapeutic riding program, helping with pony rides, cleaning stalls, and helping with special events and camps.

Volunteers must be 18 and over to help with the horses (therapy, pony rides). Basic barn chores and some special events can be assisted by minors over 14 years of age with parental consent.

Horse experience is great, but we love having volunteers that are willing to learn.


Upcoming Volunteer Training Sessions:

February 10, 2018 || Saturday 10am-12pm
March 10, 2018 || Saturday 10am-12pm
April 14, 2018 || Saturday 10am-12pm

Future dates TBD
