Love animals? Need community service hours for NHS or college apps? Join the Farrel-McWhirter Volunteer Program and get hands on experience with horses and livestock, helping children learn about agriculture and the equestrian world. The Volunteer Program holds monthly meetings, offers horseback riding opportunities, educational outings, and hands-on animal trainings. Applications are accepted year-round; however, there are only two New Member Orientations, usually held in the fall and early spring. Depending on availability and openings, an additional orientation may be added. You must attend a New Member Orientation prior to starting. Interested individuals will receive information about registering after their application has been received.
