Getting Started: To become a volunteer at Medicine Horse, please follow these steps:

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. Horse handling class and evaluation required.

Contact medicinehorsedirector@gmail.com 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 9am to 3pm.

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 Alison for more information: mary-alison.mccabe@prescott.edu
