Barn Chore Team

Barn Chore Team Volunteers assist DEFHR staff with daily chores and horse care.

Caring for the needs of 70 horses is an enormous job, one that Days End Farm Horse Rescue (DEFHR) could not accomplish without the help of the Barn Chore Team. Participating in the Barn Chores Team allows volunteers the opportunity to interact directly with DEFHR horses, learning about horse care first-hand and developing horse-handling skills.

Each day Barn Chore Volunteers assist DEFHR Barn Staff with a wide variety of chores, including:

  • feeding and watering horses
  • leading and grooming horses
  • cleaning stalls, paddocks, and aisle ways

Prospective Barn Chores Volunteers must attend a "Welcome to DEFHR" Orientation Session. For upcoming orientation dates, click here.
