Volunteering at Winslow

Our volunteers are the foundation of Winslow. We rely on their generous time and energy to help change the lives of our riders. Volunteers assist our riders during weekly lessons, groom horses, help us maintain our facility and much more! If you are interested in contributing your time, we welcome you to join us! No horse experience is necessary, just a love for people & all animals alike.

How You can Help

Special Events, Fundraising & Office Volunteers

Horses aren’t your thing? We are always in need of volunteers who have a variety of professional and office administration skills to help with fundraising and special events.

Horse Leaders, Side Walkers & Groomers

Volunteer roles consist of a horse leader who guides the horse, side walkers who focus on the rider and groomers who prepare our horses for lessons. Volunteers interested in leading & side walking should be in relatively good health. A fair amount of walking and sometimes running is required. 

Facility Support Volunteers

Operating with a small, full-time staff, we rely on our volunteers for general maintenance, repairs and improvements of our facility to keep our building & equipment up-to-date. We are always in need of carpenters, electricians, landscapers, gardeners, painters, mechanics and more!

Business and Organization Volunteer Days

Each year, businesses and groups throughout our community come together to volunteer with us for a day. Tasks have included painting, cleaning our facility, tending to our garden, trail upkeep, office work, and much, much more! Have an idea? We would love to hear from you!
