Volunteers are the backbone of the Shepard Meadows programs. Our team of volunteers offer thousands of hours each year to help our riders and incredible herd of equines be happy, safe and reaching their goals. Volunteers work in the barn, in the arena and in our offices.
Volunteering at Shepard Meadows can take as little as 1hr per week – or as much time as you would like to give, but we do ask for a regular commitment. This makes volunteering at Shepard Meadows ideal for high school students seeking volunteer hours for their resume or ag students for their SAE projects.
All volunteers must attend a general orientation with our staff, which will cover all aspects of Shepard Meadows to familiarize them with our mission, horses, riders, facility and programs.
We want you to be comfortable with us as you join our family and are committed to ensuring each volunteer receives the best training to peform their duties. Training sessions are conducted rain or shine. Please wear sturdy footwear (no open toed shoes or steel toe boots) and barn appropriate clothing.
