Meet the horses and our volunteer staff and learn about working with horses.
We rehabilitate and rehome ex racehorses – mostly from Gulfstream Park. Some also come to us abandoned or owner surrender from people who can no longer care for them. We also take other breeds – local horses suffering from neglect.
We need on average 12 people a day to feed, clean, bath, groom, turn out, and water the horses. It’s a lot of work! It’s about 30-40 total hours per day required to care for them properly.
We go thru 150 pounds of feed per day. We go thru Hundreds of pounds of hay per day. All to help the horse recover and be ready for adoption.
We need boots on the ground, people ready to roll up their sleeves and help.
We are looking for responsible volunteers that can-
– commit to At least one shift per week (2-3 hours) for at least 3 months
– have their own reliable transportation (no drop offs of minors)
– are at least 14 years of age
-are able to sign a wavier
– can take direction and work well with others
