There’s a small “barn” near my place with 4 horses all above 27yo. They are used for kids, for “pony days” etc. I have never been so I’m not sure about the exact set up but Sounds rather small and amateurish. I saw a flyer the other day that they need money as the care for older horses has become more expensive. They are asking for donations. Now. I ride at a barn where all I can do is tack up, ride and brush. I use lesson horses. I have asked to do some chores and was turned down. So I wonder if I should get in touch with this smaller barn and see if there’s anything I can help with? What options do I have? I need supervision to handle barn work as I am not experienced but I would have loved to volunteer. Or maybe I can lease one horse? My 7yo also rides, maybe this could be a good option? I’m a bit lost and am waiting to get in touch with them until I have a clearer idea of what to say. Any thoughts?
