 Volunteer for a minimum of 2 weeks up to a maximum of 12 weeks (Please note that we do not have a maximum number of weeks – we encourage longer stays, so volunteers can really get to know our horses.12 weeks is usually the longest time a volunteer usually stays for) at this great project in Florida! Care for the horses, clean their stables, feed them, wash them, socialize with them and go for horse trail rides! Travel to Florida's east coast to a ranch locked between forests, lagoons and the ocean with its beautiful beaches!

Mustangs were introduced to the US as domestic horses in the early 1500’s by the Spaniards. These horses later formed a large wild population and came to play a critical role in the building of America. The United States is virtually built on their backs. Now, when they are not needed for labor and transport anymore, they are sadly being mistreated and exploited at the hands of man. In the early 1900’s, the wild mustang population was estimated to be over 2 million. Today, there are only 40,000 left in the wild and about as many in captivity in need of rescue. Caring for a wild horse is drastically different than caring for a tame one, sadly, this is often leads to mistreatment and neglect of wild Mustangs in captivity. 

If this speaks to you then Venture to beautiful Florida and help with the day to day activities and rescue and rehabilitate Wil Mustang Horses! This project is in need of your help all year round! This project is located between ranchland, forests, lagoons, wetlands and the Ocean a recipe for amazing trail rides! The work with the wild horses is by no means an’ easy holiday option’ and you will be involved in animal care, food preparation, cleaning, maintenance and educating the public!

Dagelijkse activiteiten

The purpose and goals of the project is to provide a temporary and in some cases permanent sanctuary for Wild Mustang horses that have been abused, abandoned, neglected, confiscated or previously owned by people unwilling or unable to provide for these magnificent beings. Additionally, The project also strives to create greater awareness and understanding of the wild Mustang. They offer mentoring classes for Mustang owners; hold workshops on care and gentling of Mustangs; give educational seminars on Mustangs in American History, and bring Mustangs to wildlife festivals and other community events. Your main tasks will mainly consist out of the following but are not limited to:
  • Stable cleaning
  • Care for the animals (Mustangs and also the dogs and pigs) which includes; grooming, bathing, cleaning, bonding and nurturing.
  • Animal Health Care
  • Educating the Public
  • Food prep
  • Diet and water changing
  • Trail Rides
  • Building and Maintenance of enclosures
When we rescue horses from abusive and neglectful environments, they are often at the brink of death. The goal is to nurse them back to health, tame and train them so they have a chance at being adopted in to a loving home. The majority of them can indeed be tamed, trained and adopted – others cannot. The horses that cannot be tamed are known to be “wild at heart” and the project “will never force them to work with them and be tame if they don’t want to”. These wild horses live out their days at the center because their chances of being adopted are minimal.

Your schedule will mostly be as following: 
Two work shifts (one morning, one afternoon) each shift being 4-5 hours long. Breaks are 2 hours’ midday in the winter and 3 hours’ midday during the summer. Each weekend the group is split with 1/2 days off on the weekends.
Please adjust the work shift hours to the following: Work Shifts for September – May: Morning shift: 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM (Break from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM) Afternoon shift: 2:00 PM – Sunset Work shifts for June, July, and August (Hours are adjusted during the warm summer months) 
Morning shift: 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM (Break from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM) Afternoon shift: 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
