Please consider joining us in helping to create smiles and success for all involved in our programs. No horse experience is necessary for certain volunteer roles. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Side Walkers:  Side Walkers are part of the team responsible for the safety of our mounted clients during program sessions. Side Walkers do not require any previous horse experience. Program volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.

Horse Leaders: Horse Leaders are responsible for leading horses during program sessions. Horse Leaders must have at least 3 years of prior horse handling experience. Program volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.


Groomers: Groomers assist the instructor by grooming and tacking before a session.  Groomers must have gone through Horse Leader Training, as well as Groomer Training. Program volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.
Barn Volunteers: Volunteers in the barn are vital to Topfield. These volunteers work with the Barn Staff to feed and water horses, clean stalls, and report any health or safety concerns to the Barn Manager or Barn Assistant. Barn volunteers must have at least 3 years of prior horse handling and barn help experience and be at least 14 years old or older.
Facilities/Maintenance Volunteers:
Although still fairly new, a facility as large as ours requires extensive ongoing maintenance and repairs. When things need fixing, we depend on our skilled Facilities/Maintenance Team volunteers. These volunteers will assist with general maintenance and repairs to the facility and the grounds, including our trails. Volunteers must be 18 years old or older.
Fundraising/Marketing/Community Engagement Volunteers: Topfield Equestrian Center is entirely dependent on donations, grants, and charitable giving. Fundraising Volunteers help raise urgently needed funds so that Topfield can continue to deliver the premier services in the region. Because fundraising isn't just about soliciting funds, our Marketing and Community Engagement Volunteers help us communicate to the community why the donations are needed and how they are being used. 

Other Volunteers:
We also seek individuals with skills such as photography and video production, graphic design, creative cloud, public relations and social media to help Topfield Equestrian Center remained aligned with its mission. 

Our Volunteer program is on hold due to Covid-19.
