Outdoor Assistants

During school holidays, each morning, Monday to Friday, go out into the paddocks and pick up horse dung with a shovel and wheelbarrow. Then wheel the full barrows to the deposit area.

The objective is to clear the paddocks of horse dung each morning. This benefits the horses - if dung is left in the paddocks parasitic worms grow. Healthy horses mean all of our disabled riders get to ride.

Morning tea is provided.


Physically capable of wheeling a barrow and using a shovel. As this role is outdoors, volunteers would need their own wet weather gear and sturdy footwear, eg gumboots are ideal. On sunny days volunteers need their own sunhats, sunscreen and sunglasses.

Time commitment:

School holidays - Monday to Friday, 8.30 or 9.00am to 11.30am (may be earlier finish depending on number of volunteers)
School Term - Mondays only
