Thank you for your interest in volunteering for The Horse Trust.
Our volunteers are vital in helping us with our work to improve the lives of Horses. We occassionally have opportunities for volunteering or work experience at our Home of Rest for Horses and events around the UK.
We currently have the following volunteering opportunities available at our Home of Rest for Horses in Speen, Buckinghamshire:
Regular Yard Volunteer – For volunteers aged 15 or over who are able to make a regular, reliable commitment of at least one day per week. Volunteers will help the yard staff with general yard duties including mucking out, grooming and feeding horses, changing rugs, field checks and general tidying and yard maintenance.

Please note: Work placements are currently only available to veterinary students or students who are currently studying or have recently graduated from equine related college course.
Police Training Volunteer -The Welfare Department is looking to recruit volunteers to assist with the running of their Police Officer training courses. These courses teach police officers basic horse handling skills, and the Welfare Department requires people with experience and knowledge of horses to assist with these courses. The course includes both classroom based PowerPoint presentations and practical sessions outside.
