The Volunteer Program provides learning opportunities for anyone willing to put in the time. It also makes it possible for us to offer a wide variety of programs ranging from Girl Scouts, equine therapy to special events. Perfect for any cowgirl or cowboy wrangler wannabe. Must be age 16 or older to volunteer. No experience with horses necessary. We are looking for enthused, conscientious individuals who enjoy working with horses and the public. If you are looking for an opportunity to give back to the community, come join our team. We also have a lot of fun!
All volunteers are trained in all aspects of caring for horses and working with the public. Experienced or inexperienced, we all share in tasks such as mucking stalls and cleaning water buckets. As your skills and experience improve, you can move up on the trail rides as a back rider.
Some examples of volunteer tasks are: greeting the public, assisting in pony programs, grooming and saddling horses, leading pony rides, mucking stalls, sweeping the alleyway, feed room and tack room, checking and or cleaning the water trough, moving horses from outside to a stall or visa versa, clean tack, just to name a few....
A great way to expand your horizons! The volunteer program provides so many benefits it's hard to put into words. I was a city slicker from downtown Chicago, and didn't even know I liked horses, let alone, know how to take care of them. My husband and I took lessons starting in 1999 and I have been volunteering ever since. It has been a great way to learn new things and meet new friends. Patricia (AKA Miss Pat)
I've been volunteering since 2000 and there's never a dull moment! I get my "horsie fix" every week, learn a little bit more and work with a wonderful group of people and have a great time. It's been so rewarding. If you love horses, have a few hours and want to meet some wonderful people, come on out! Theresa
Giant City Stables is my little get away from the daily routine. This is where I come to meet, work and play with a great group of people of different ages, who all have a common interest: Horses! It amazes me-I still learn something new about horses every time I come here. Nancy
