Volunteer Opportunities

HHYF has many volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Each spring, we need trainers to condition our horses and prepare them for summer camp season. See below:

The Harness Horse Youth Foundation (HHYF) is once again seeking a few qualified trainers to condition its stable of Trottingbreds in preparation for the organization’s summer program schedule. Volunteer trainers are expected to jog or exercise the horse on a daily basis to build stamina, but no actual training miles are required. Trainer is responsible for all care, feed, hay, bedding, and shoeing. Horses will be delivered on or about April 1 and picked up in June. Each horse comes with its own harness (and hopples if needed). For more information, contact HHYF Executive Director Ellen Taylor at 317-908-0029 or by email at [email protected].

We are ALWAYS looking for licensed trainers and drivers to assist our campers with jogging horses at our camps. We also need help supporting our fundraisers and other activities.

Check back for specific volunteer opportunities, or e-mail our Executive Director, Ellen Taylor at [email protected].
