Being a 501(c3) nonprofit agency we utilize volunteers in every field of operation. From clerical, horse care, in-lesson work, barn chores to maintenance, EASI depends on folks just like you.! In 2013, The EASI team logged over 5,000 hours of service with EASI and are the backbone of our program.
Volunteers must be 14 years of age to serve in lesson, however, our Barnmice Program volunteers, those younger than 14, are able to work at the center performing routine chores, caring for the horses and helping run items back and forth during lessons. There is a place at EASI for everyone to serve and be a part of our community. We welcome all regardless of horse experience.
