Equest is a dynamic facility that utilizes over 400 volunteers a week to create a safe and effective environment for our clients and horses. We encourage you to become a partner with us as we look to the future.
Adults and teenagers who are interested in assisting children and adults with disabilities are invited to participate in our therapeutic horsemanship programs. The minimum age requirement to volunteer in the program is 14 years of age.
Facility and Barn Volunteer Work is available for ages 12 and up.
ALL volunteers must be trained for their respective jobs before accruing hours. Our next volunteer training dates are Saturday, May 30th or Saturday, June 6th, 2015 from 8:30am-2:30pm at the Wylie location, and Saturday, May 16th from 8:30am-2:30pm at the Texas Horse Park location.
