Volunteer Training

Our volunteers come to the farm with all levels of experience.

New volunteers -- We invite you to fill out an application to take the first step toward joining our amazing team of volunteers. Once our Volunteer Manager receives the application, she will email you to schedule an orientation. Our next orientation is Monday, June 12th 5:30 p.m. Check out more information about volunteering on our main volunteer page. 

Current volunteers -- We offer a variety of trainings on a monthly basis to help volunteers improve their horse skills and learn how to better support our students. There is a sign up sheet in the tack room for each session, or you can email Holly at hhendershot@fieldstonefarm.org. Our schedule for June:

  • Monday June 5th at 12:45 p.m., Red, Red/Purple, Purple level training
  • Monday June 12th at 6:30 p.m., Horse Handling the Fieldstone Way (recommended for new volunteers or those wishing for a refresher)
