Happy hooves have no paid staff and appreciate all the hard work the volunteers do. We are always in need of volunteers (age 16 and up) to help with the daily chores and projects around the farm. If the daily horse chores is not your thing we also need volunteers to help with our parties, group events, fundraisers, grant writing, and gardening.
