Volunteer at TRRAC! Volunteers are our force!
Riding and Training
While we know it must be so wonderful to be able to just show up and ride and even show on the weekends- our horses do take a certain type of rider. Our horses are "green", which means they do not understand their new jobs and rely on our skilled riders to teach them. Each rider will be required to take a rider's test.
This includes tacking up, mounting and riding the horse at a walk, trot and canter on their own. You must demonstrate control. Don't worry, we always have a horse for someone to ride! Most of our horses are quiet and kind. Some even prefer to just walk the trails.
We have riders from all backgrounds. Some are pleasure riders, others aim for the show ring. We have a program for everyone and a horse for every soul.
Showing, Competing and Events
As we appreciate our riders and their assistance, we do offer the opportunity for you to attend events, expos, shows, clinics and more! Most of these costs are covered by TRRAC. Showing our horses is not only fun, but helps build our horse's resume and gain exposure! A peak benefit to riding our horses is free lessons!
Do you yearn to be "at the barn?" Want to do a good thing? You've come to the right place! Whether you just want to have a bonding grooming session filled with treats and snuggle time, or want more ride time in the saddle with the oppurtunity to show, we have something for everyone!
Volunteers are our most appreciated "staff". You help us, help our horses, all while doing something great! Volunteering is hard work, so please be prepared to assist in the many barn duties we all share on a daily basis.
Are you prepared to volunteer? Our volunteers tackle the toughest of jobs here at TRRAC. While it seems absolutely fantastic to be able to just hang out and ride all day, please keep in mind we work very hard and we do get down and dirty. From one hour to all day, there is always something that needs to be done here at our sanctuary.
Handling and Grooming
We have many horses who appreciate a good grooming session. We are a working farm and many horses who are trained, walked or on stall rest are in need of grooming, bathing, walking out and having their tack cared for. Volunteering in this aspect is a great way to help our team mates continue training and rehabilitation with our horses.
We all share the same basic stable duties. There is always much to do and the dirtiest of work is no exception. Our horses rely on us to keep their stalls clean, buckets and feed tubs scrubbed and yes, even their laundry. Dirty wraps and saddle pads must be attended to as well.
