Community Access & Participation

Whether you are horse-curious or horse-savvy; interested in volunteering, learning about horses for the first time, or wishing to take part in programming, there is a place for you in the Pony Up Rescue Collective. We are just getting started!

Community Horse Grooming Workshops

Free and open to all! No experience necessary. Biweekly learning sessions for those who would like to learn the ropes and experience handling and grooming horses. Maximum 6 participants per session. Here is the link to sign up for Community Horse Grooming Workshops on Mondays and Wednesdays this month:

Volunteer Opportunities

Those with experience are welcome to volunteer for AM & PM feedings, farm chores and teaching assistance. Those who wish to offer expertise in media, marketing, design, photography, finance, and fundraising are of course welcome as well. Sign up to get started.

Living Resources Programming

We have partnered with Living Resources Day Community Opportunities Program (DCOP) and are hosting sessions at the farm. Contact them through the above link to get involved.
