Weekly Volunteer Availability
Most volunteers commit to the same day for a 2 to 4 hour shift during the school year. We work from the end of Aug through May, Mon - Thur from 7am - 7:30pm.

All new volunteers will complete the general orientation training and can then be scheduled for Barn Skills Training. Barn skills is more detailed training on RED's procedures for safety, barn chores, horse care and daily operations. Once the Barn Skills Training is complete you can move on to Lead Volunteer and/or Side Walker Training.

Please let us know ALL your options for your general availability to volunteer. Once you complete the orientation we will confirm a regular weekly shift time.

If you can not volunteer weekly, there are more options below in "Special Projects"

Please let us know all your preferences for helping us at RED Arena each week. Once you complete your orientation and barn training you can add other roles.
Barn volunteers are vital to keeping our facilities clean, organized and running smoothly. Tasks include filling hay bags, sweeping, cleaning stalls, grooming & tacking horses.
Lead volunteers share their passion for keeping RED looking great and running smoothly by training new volunteers on barn tasks as well as prepping horses for sessions.
