Volunteer Information & Resources

Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer for the Equine Spirit Sanctuary (ESS), a volunteer-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to offer programs for people in education and activities relating to horses, and rescue and rehab for horses. Volunteers are needed to assist in the growth of ESS and day to day operations. We are seeking volunteers to assist with activities and fund raising, involve local businesses, and recruit more volunteers.

There are many different ways and opportunities to share your time, knowledge and energy with ESS. Let us know what your special skills and interests are! We look forward to having you as part of the ESS volunteer team.

Volunteers are required to do an orientation session to assess their skills and abilities before assisting with ESS equines and activities. Duties will be assigned according the volunteer’s capabilities and interests and in accordance with ESS goals. Volunteers are encouraged to work with team leaders and directors to advance their skills. Persons who wish to help with the therapuetic riding programs must attend two of the three training sessions offered in May, or do equivalent training time with the instructor/program director.
