VOLUNTEER

Volunteer

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.
