How to Help

Volunteer at the Equestrian Center

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

We need volunteers to help with pony rides, clean stalls, special events and camps! Any time you volunteer helps; whether it is once a year or once a day.

Don't have horse experience? No problem! All volunteers are required to go through our training provided for FREE before they begin. 

*Volunteers must be 18+ to help with the horses. Basic barn chores and some special events can be assisted by 14+ years of age with parental consent.
