    Good idea... I definitely went above and beyond the number of hours required when I did it. I enjoyed it, so I just volunteered every week and she signed off on the number of hours that I needed.

    Might want to start your own thread on both of those matters... neither are particularly relevant to the original question, and you'll get much better results if you start another. But, it varies based on the job and where you are located.

    It's pretty hot right now :) we're four days into autumn so it should be cooling soonish. Otherwise, it's basically the same as America minus guns and American accents :). And plus lots of kangaroos, crocodiles, and drop bears xD

    Just say you're interested in volunteering and wondering if there is an application you can fill out and where to find it :))) Therapy riding people are usually SUPER nice so don't be nervous!

    Thanks GodGirl! There is an application form but I'd like to speak to them first just to make sure they're interested in new volunteers before I submit it - it's more of a permission form than an application :)

    I am going to be contacting them soon after this round of exams is done. I feel like teachers always give us exams all at the same time xD

    In my experience, barns like that are usually thrilled to have any new volunteers coming in, even more one with horse experience. So no need to be nervous, I'm sure they'd love to have you! Best of luck with your exams, btw :)

    When I got started volunteering, I simply sent the organization an email saying I was interested, how old I was, and my experience. They do love getting new volunteers, but love getting volunteers with prior experience!

    Thanks everyone :)

    I think I'll send an email first, just because that's what it says to do on the website, and see if/what the reply is. If there's no reply, I'll call, otherwise I'll go from there :)

    I'll let you know what's going on!

    You could always go the the barn or shelter. Than talk to the manger there.

    I don't know how the folks operate that you are considering volunteering for, but as for us, we would bend over backwards to help you feel comfortable about volunteering! We always need volunteers!! In fact, much of our time on the Board of Directors is aimed at 1) finding more volunteers and, 2) finding grants and/or fund-raising activities.
