Volunteer Opportunities

Event Volunteers
Minimum Age: 16
Pal-O-Mine Equestrian offers over ten community events and fundraisers over the course of the year. Event volunteers can be anyone interested in serving on a community for several of our very successful events including the following: The Putters for Ponies Annual Golf Outing, The Belmont Race Track Day at the Races, The Mane Event Community Friendraiser, Several Benefit Horse Competitions, the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, multiple tag sale and tack swap events, and several other events.

Additionally, sponsors and sponsorship opportunities are available to interest volunteers.

Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Team Volunteer
Minimum Age: 16
The Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Team is a successful competition team that has been competing in international, national, regional, and local competitions for over fifteen years. There are approximately 12 competitions that the Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Team competes in each year, with ten of those competitions being off-site.

The Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Team volunteers are enthusiastic volunteers that can commit full weekend (and once per year a weekday) days to the complete competition process (from braiding and bathing to assisting the riders in competition). All Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Team volunteers must take the general volunteer training before becoming a volunteer. Please use the Contact Us feature to inquire about becoming a competition volunteer.

General Volunteer
Minimum Age: 16
A general volunteer begins our volunteering with our program by signing up for a volunteer orientation. Please use the Contact Us feature and we will let you know when the next volunteer orientation takes place. Volunteer Orientations are held approximately twice a month. A volunteer application will then be submitted, with two references required.

General volunteers will then have two private/small group two hour private training sessions scheduled with a staff member. General volunteers usually start with basic horse and facility care and sidewalking and can train later to be leaders, horse tackers, and more advanced horse care volunteers.
