We could not function without the dedication of our volunteers. As a small organization, we have few paid employees and everything from stall cleaning, to painting, to tacking, to maintenance, to marketing and promotion is done by our volunteers.
We have heard that, for as much as our volunteers do for us, they feel that they receive equal if not more from the experience. It’s a chance to break away from your usual routine while benefiting those in need.
No horse experience is necessary as we can train you. All that is needed is a good attitude and a desire to learn.
The first step to becoming an individual volunteer is to sign up. You will be contacted by our volunteer coordinator. She will schedule a tour and get you on the calendar so that you can get started with training and volunteering.
Lesson volunteers assist riders by grooming and tacking horses before class, supporting riders while in class, leading horses, and putting away horses after class. Lesson volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one regular shift for at least 6 months.
Barn Team volunteers assist with horse feeding and barn chores, including filling water buckets and cleaning stalls. Barn Team volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one regular shift for at least 6 months.
All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age or older. We absolutely welcome all ages and all skill levels. Don’t know about horses? That’s not at all an issue as we are eager to help you learn.
Unfortunately, service hours performed at Scooter’s cannot be used to fulfill obligations of court ordered community service.
