Volunteers are essential to fulfilling the mission of nonprofit agencies. HorseLink has many opportunities for volunteers to help. Whether you assist with horse handling during our programs and grooming days or helping with our fundraising events and efforts, we always love to find enthusiastic people who can lend a hand to help us accomplish our mission. We know having dedicated volunteers is the only way to make HorseLink happen.
Here are some of ongoing volunteer opportunities.
Provide help with set-up and take down and with horse handling during our veterans and trauma programs as well as periodic grooming days we host with different populations. These are full-day or half-day jobs which require significant horse handling experience.
Help out with barn chores and general farm upkeep. Duties include things such as feeding, grooming, cleaning stalls and water troughs, and other miscellaneous barn chores. Again, experience with and knowledge of horses is helpful.
Helping at special events, such as our annual fundraiser, Saddle Up Austin! and other events throughout the year.
Helping with administrative duties central to fundraising campaigns—things such as stuffing envelopes, record keeping, thank you phone calls, etc.
“God bless you and HorseLink for caring for these horses in such a humane and altruistic way.”
