Volunteering  / Working Students

Join the team!

Roll up your sleeves and breathe in the "outdoors and pony" air –

feel your heart sing as you muck in and join the team who make it all happen

at the Horse & Heart Community.


There is always a lot to do on the farm, and varied tasks for all tastes and skills, too. Here are some of the fields in which you can lend a hand –

just take your pick:

  • Horse Care Team

  • Help on the land – maintenance, fencing, gardening etc.

  • Photography & Video

  • Events Organisation

  • IT Assistance & Online Marketing

  • Networking & Advertising

  • Fundraising

  • Eco building / landscaping

Regular Volunteers

If you are local or able to pop over regularly, the best way to join the Horse &Heart team and get the most out of the experience is to sign up for a fixed, regular volunteering slot. This way you get to know the herd and fit in with the flow of the team. It also allows you to be autonomous in your tasks, to see the progress of your work and to bring your own creative ideas, too! 


Whether you'd like to come every Tuesday for a day out, or every day from 9 to 12 – or whatever your regular time is – there is always a job that will work for you!

Committed volunteers who work autonomously and efficiently on a regular basis are punctually offered free attendance to Horse & Heart workshops.

At the moment we are particularly looking for volunteers to take on some days of the week for:

- Horse Care (daily slots 9 -12 am and 3 - 6 pm  –  Feeding, mucking out, harvesting plants, grooming, tack care etc)

- Land jobs (weeding, fencing etc – daily work for any amount of time)

And for people with more specific skills / tools for:

- Garden & trees care

- Wood splitting / chainsawing.

- Eco building of outbuildings (sheds) and house as a skill share.

- Fundraising and networking for partnerships.

Pop in Volunteers

Spontaneous help is also very welcome, so please be in touch if you've suddenly got the "outdoors & pony itch" and would like to muck in of a few hours, a day, or a week or two!
