Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! This is a project with a HUGE heart. You'll assist in a Centre that rescues mustangs that would have been put to death. The horses (who are often at the brink of death when they reach the Centre), are nursed back to health and then trained with positive reinforcement and love to become adoptable. The Centre currently houses about 30 horses, but it is hoping that with the help of volunteers, they will be able to increase this number by rescuing more horses.
The Centre rescues mustangs from such situations and illegal slaughter houses. The horses, who are often at the brink of death when they reach the Centre, are nursed back to health and then trained with positive reinforcement and love to become adoptable.
The Centre currently houses about 30 horses (plus 10 dogs, 2 cats, one pig, a few geese and hens as well!). You'll be working with all of them.
When the horses arrive at the Centre, they are often terrified of people. That is why volunteers are not only needed for the daily upkeep of the Centre, but also critical to the taming and training of these horses. By spending time with kindhearted people who care, the horses come to realize that not all people are bad.
Mustangs were, historically, a valued resource that played a critical role in the successful development of America. Mustangs are regarded as a treasured national symbol in America, but, sadly, they are currently treated in a cruel and inhumane manner. By volunteering at this rescue Centre, you can help some of these horses to live a dignified and happy life.
The work schedule is structured in two work shifts. One morning and one afternoon. Each work shift is about 2 hours. Breaks can be taken any time. Other than work, here will be activities such as riding and socializing with the horses.
