Volunteer

We need you! Can you help us take care of our horses? Let’s talk! Training provided.

A.G.E.S. is looking for ongoing volunteers to commit their time to assist with the horses. Extra sets of hands are always needed. If you have an hour a week, or an hour a month, you can be helpful.
Here are some of the things you may be be asked to do:

  • Brushing and grooming
  • Desensitizing
  • Socializing (giving them attention to make them feel more comfortable in their new environment)
  • Fly Spraying
  • Of course, don’t forget about mucking!

    An orientation session usually takes place on the second Saturday of every month, weather permitting. Pre-registration is required for orientation, as space is limited. 

    Volunteers cannot begin prior to orientation.

    Children under the age of 14 must be under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian, and must be working side by side with them.

    Minors between the age of 14 and 17 must be under the supervision of an adult. It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that a minor is not dropped off without confirmation in advance that an adult volunteer is available to supervise your child

    Our Volunteer Coordinator is Laurie. Please E-mail her at helpahorseatages@gmail.com for more information about volunteering or to pre-register for an orientation event (required).

    NOTE: We get many requests for tours and visits to our facility. Because it is Erin and John’s personal property, we have reserved the first Sunday of every month from 2 pm to 4 pm for visitors to come and meet the horses. A one hour, personal tour can be arranged for you and your group for a donation of $100 to AGES.
