Want to become a part of the Henry’s Home Family?
To join our family you must be over the age of 18. After you go through our initial safety and training orientation, you can start working right away under the guidance of one of our more experienced Herdmates. Some volunteers come with years of horse experience, and some have spent their lives afraid of horses and are now ready to get over that fear. All come with an open heart to continually learn. We often get asked if Herdmates can bring out their teenage children; this will be determined on a case by case basis by our Executive Director after we see how they act around the horses and humans.
We all pitch in a monthly fee [$75 non-riders, $150 riders] to help support our horses. That fee starts the first of the month after you have started working with us. It is waived if you are a veteran or first responder. It’s also waived if you work for a company that matches your time out here with funds for our organization. We spend our time feeding, grooming, riding [or not, your choice] and caring for our horses and our farm. If you have IT skills, marketing experience, fundraising experience, a spouse who loves to build and work with his hands, or anything else that we could use as a non-profit, even better.
If you are interested in more information, or want to join the next Training and Safety Orientation Class, please contact our Executive Director, Donna Stedman, at 281-292-1110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
