Duties will range from general clean up, grooming, paddock maintence, to helping clients tack up/untack their horses for lessons. Community service hours must be booked in advance with us and if unable to attend we ask for 24hr notice.
Volunteer Work Days
We host special clean up and work days where we reach out and ask our friends, students and local comunity to help us out. It's a lot of work to keep our place looking good and we are continually trying to improve our farm and we couldn't do it without your help and support!
Yes these work days are a lot of work but also fun and rewarding! It's a chance to be among friends and meet other members of REC as well as help us make our farm a better place. For every hour worked and/or project completed depending on the day/tasks we will provide our voulenteers with raffle tickets and with that they will have the chance to win great some great prizes such as free lessons and tack!
