We feel very lucky to have such a wonderful team of volunteers. Volunteer roles can vary from stable chores, helping with the horses, acting as chaperones when we have unaccompanied participants, fundraising, etc. Please contact us if you would like to enquire about volunteering.

Our Amazing Horses and Ponies

Our horses are the most important members of the team and are specially trained in natural horsemanship techniques. However, they all have very different personalities and contribute different attributes to the team.
