Volunteer Opportunities


Working Student-Room & Meals
Minimum Age: 19
Working Student for at least 3 month period. This is a NON-paying position. We provide you with a room in main house, full bath in hall, bathroom supplies, laundry supplies, meals, snacks, etc. We are like "family" here, community where we all work together. We need someone we can trust with the care of our horses and to be in our home. We are a work in progress here looking for someone who wants to be a part of a nonprofit facility that focuses on rehabilitation of horses and educating the community. We have lots of construction going on--new arena going in, round pen being moved, new fencing going up. Someone who can work around that and still do hands on work with the horses getting them ready for adoption. This is to include--teaching haltering, leading, picking up feet for farrier, grooming, bathing, lunging where able, getting used to tack, desensitizing to lots of things. Must be an EARLY riser. Opportunity to learn, build confidence, help horses that oridinarily would not have a second chance at life. We do a lot of medical here and you can gain insight into this by being here.

Mornings after feed is best to work with horses. Afternoon time allows for someone to do online study until evening feed so if your going to school this is a good way to do it and help horses at the same time.

Someone with initiative and organized, people skills, not afraid of physical work. No princesses or entitled attitudes - We don't do drama. Someone 19 or older, single. Proper barn attire MANDATORY. No alcohol/drugs allowed on property--immediate expulsion from property for violation.

We do not use harsh training methods or harsh tack here. No abuse is tolerated.
Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate pets or additional horses. We currently have dogs on property and cats at the barn.

No Working Couples.

Barn Help Needed!
Horse Feathers is in need of volunteers to assist with feeding, cleaning, grooming and general chores around the facility. People with horse experience, or those who demonstrate an ability to listen and learn may be able to work with the horses in order to enable them to find their forever homes.

Please read our Volunteer page on the website, read the Handbook and fill out volunteer forms.


Wish List Items


Covered Arena
We are in need of sponsor to help us get in a covered arena so that we can continue training out of the weather. Oklahoma winds are horrible, heat and cold takes its toll so we need an area to be able to work horses that is more comfortable. This will allow us to also hold programs that we have here.
