AHEAD With Horses was mentioned in an online article as one of 10 ways to Help do Good and Volunteer in Los Angeles! You can read the whole article by clicking the link below.
If you want to be one of our amazing volunteers, all you have to do is come to an orientation on a Saturday morning at 8:45am. (Rain will normally cancel and we are closed for major 3-day holiday weekends.)
Volunteers must be at least 12 to volunteer. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you to sign some paperwork. Closed-toe shoes (should be comfortable because there is a lot of walking), a shirt with sleeves (T-shirts are fine; No tank tops) and long pants are required. If planning to stay for the entire day (till approx. 2 – 2:30pm) then bringing water and a sack lunch/snack is recommended. Other days and times available for volunteering will be given at the orientation.
We normally have volunteers assist the instructor with the children and horses, which includes, leading horses and spotting, which is walking alongside the horse to ensure child’s safety and position changes on the horse. Other activities might include: grooming horses, cleaning tack, gardening (raking, weeding, etc.), mailings, etc.
If you have any other questions or need directions PLEASE CALL 818 – 767 – 6373.
