Volunteer at Gentle Giants

Can you help? Our volunteers are very hands-on and are responsible for duties directly involved with the horses.

No experience? No problem, we can train you! We have volunteering opportunities for all experience levels.

Duties involve real farm work such as:

  • Feeding
  • Haying
  • Mucking
  • Cleaning
  • Turning in and out
  • Farm maintenance
  • Watering
  • Grooming

Volunteers must be over 18 or accompanied by a parent.

Help is needed on both Weekend and Weekday morning and evening shifts.

Volunteers are offered the privilege of riding horses (as deemed appropriate by the Trainer) when they have committed to dedicating 20 volunteer hours a month. Riding privileges are granted upon completion of a full day's work.

Gentle Giants also has a Show Team and a Drill Team which are open to volunteers who qualify.

Please email our volunteer coordinator at volunteers@gentlegiantsdrafthorserescue.org or call 443-285-3835.
