Volunteer Options

Horse Handling: Assist facilitators with programs offered at Medicine Horse Program. Your job as a horse handler will be to keep the horses and participants safe, while assisting with any class activities. The Equine Skills class and evaluation required.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.

Muckers: We are looking for volunteers to assist with mucking (just a fancy word for removing manure from the horse stalls). Mucking is essential to keeping the facility clean and our horses healthy! Volunteers are needed 7 days a week from 9 am to 3 pm.

Other: We can use your help in all sorts of ways: answering phones, maintenance projects, community outreach, event planning, fundraising and more. Get in touch to learn about all of our current options!

Volunteer Perks:

At Medicine Horse Program, we strive to make volunteering worthwhile for you. We truly couldn't do what we do without our volunteers. New in 2017:

  • Sign up to be a buddy to one of the horses. After your stall cleaning shift, connect with your favorite horse through grooming, leading, or just spending time in the stall.

  • Monthly opportunities for all volunteers to come hang out with our horses, free of charge, in a supervised setting. Get to know the horses and people who make MHP a success! If you are a current volunteer, please join us at our next event to spend time with the horses and learn what EAP is all about first hand: Contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
