We need experienced horse people who can groom ponies and horses at the yard; with potential of training and supervising other volunteers in the grooming and handling of the equines at the Sanctuary. The Animals can have trust issues and can really benefit from one on one care and support.
You must have experience in grooming horses. Experience in working with nervous horses and ponies is useful as many of our horses and ponies have traumatic pasts that have left them wary of people and touch.
Grooming is a job that sadly too often gets set aside at the sanctuary due to the large number of animals in care. With grooming not only are we cleaning the horses and checking for any problems but we are also bonding and providing a chance for the horses and ponies to see that human contact doesn't always have to be scary.
