Becoming a Volunteer

* Junior Volunteers between ages 10 – 15 must be accompanied by a Parent or Guardian.

Please be aware that as of February 2019 there will be a $20.00 individual or $25.00 per household volunteer registration fee.

Interested?

First step:      Submit the New Volunteer Interest form located at the bottom of this page.  Once you submit this form our Volunteer Organizer will contact you to explain how you can best help ERAF and make arrangements for you to attend a New Volunteer Orientation. 

Second step: Orientation. The first  Saturday of the month ERAF conducts a Volunteer Orientation at our Community Center property (6450 SW Martin Highway)  adjacent to the barn.   Orientation begins at 10a.m. sharp!  

Orientation is mandatory for all ERAF Volunteers.  

To qualify for handling horses, all new volunteers must complete the Basic Horsemanship training program (one day per week over three weeks) unless they are able to demonstrate to the barn manager the appropriate horsemanship capabilities.

 

What You’ll Be Learning
As a volunteer you will be caring for our rescues by:

  • Learning all about our horses and their history.
  • Maintaining healthy protocols and safe conditions at all times for you and the horses.
  • Learning to look for and report any unusual behavior or any
    cuts or illness concerning the horses to a staff member.
  • Continuing to learn about the horses and improving your skills.
  • Help with fundraising events & community awareness about
    ERAF’s mission.

Closed in shoes are a must. Feel free to call: 772-220-0150 for more information.

Please be aware that as of February 2019 there will be a $20.00 individual or $25.00 per household volunteer registration fee.
