Why Volunteer

Horses require constant care and attention and we are always in need of dedicated and qualified volunteers.  Volunteers provide a foundation for our sanctuary and without them, we wouldn't be where we are today.  We value your time and appreciate your interest in choosing to volunteer with Noble.  As a volunteer at Noble Horse Sanctuary,  you can expect to assist with daily cleaning, feeding, grooming, hand walking and turn out.


Volunteer Requirements & Guidelines

Noble Horse Sanctuary Volunteers
Just a few of our dedicated volunteers.
  • First time volunteers will need to schedule an appointment with the Barn Manager for their first visit.
  • We ask that all volunteers be at least 21 years old.
  • Recommended attire includes proper footwear and long pants.  Proper footwear is considered a pair of shoes with good tread, strong toe protection, waterproof (in winter) and mud proof.
  • No running, screaming, teasing, or entering corrals or pastures without permission.
  • Upon arriving at the Sanctuary, you will need to fill out a Volunteer Waiver.  A copy of the waiver can be downloaded here.
  • Previous horse experience is great, but not a requirement.
Please see below for more information regarding our Volunteer Policies.
