Adult Volunteer Opportunities (18 years and older):

Thank you for your interest in our Adult Volunteer Program. Our volunteers are a vital part of our mission and help our staff provide excellent care and service for our two and four legged program participants. We have several volunteer paths that depend on your area of interest and horse experience. We are most in need of volunteers for:
  * Barn chores
  * Pasture cleaning
  * Grounds maintenance
  * Horse care

Please know that our volunteers do NOT ride horses; our horses get plenty of exercise and schooling by our paid staff and lesson students.

 

Youth Volunteer Program:

Youth 15 to 17 years of age are eligible to participate in our Youth Volunteer Program which is primarily barn chores, pasture cleaning, and horse care. Youth volunteers work under the direction of one of our staff members but must have basic horse safety skills and be able to work independently. Please know that our volunteers do NOT ride horses; our horses get plenty of exercise and schooling by our paid staff and lesson students.

 

Volunteer Application Process:

Step one – Complete our Volunteer Program Application

Step two – Attend the one hour Volunteer Orientation which includes a tour of the Ranch, meeting our program horses, and hands-on barn chore training.

Step three – Establish your Onsite Volunteer Schedule.
We have two options for volunteers:
   1) regular weekly scheduled time at the ranch and/or
   2) being on-call for special needs/events

*** Volunteers with a regular schedule need to inform us 24 hours in advance if they will miss their scheduled time as we become dependent on their work contribution***

If our Volunteer Program sounds like a match for your interests, please email
             volteam@silverbuckleranch.org
and we will send you the Volunteer Program Application.
