We have Volunteer Training sessions frequently. Please watch this page for announcements of upcoming training sessions, held at the HorsePower barn 1/4 mile west of Wild Water West! Call 251-1685 for more info. You don’t have to work, just see and learn more about who we are and what we do. It’s fun, safe and easy! All you do is walk beside a horse and help a rider. Horse experience is great, but not necessary. Smiles are free! Come experience love of people and horses “HorsePower style”!
Barn Address: 26659 Blue Sage Lane, Sioux Falls, SD (west of Hwy 17/466th Ave. on W. 41st St. – near Wild Water West)
This is the job that pays you so much more than money. HorsePower pays our volunteers with smiles, and knowing that what you are doing is changing lives of people you can touch, laugh with, and mentor.
We need people of all walks in life. Seniors, retirees, students, family, medical professionals, equine experts; the only requirement is that you be 14 and over and have a willing heart to share.
We have periodic volunteer training sessions so you will be confident in what your role is. Most needed are horse leaders and “side-walkers” – people who walk alongside the horse and keep riders seated. But many other opportunitys to help abound. Some examples of needs are grounds keeping, mowing, painting, planting and nurturing flowers, grooming and helping with horses, cleaning up after horses (it can be very therapuetic for you too!), making phone calls, helping schedule other volunteers, helping with special promotions like dances and benefit auctions, helping with communications, the list is endless. Bring your skill to us and we can use it to help others.
If you think this is for you, please contact our staff today – contact information is on our “contact us” page if you would like to phone, or just email today: Rachel.Schafer@HorsePowerSF.com.
