Volunteering

It takes a lot of people power to keep things running at New Freedom Farm. We need volunteers to do much of the day-to-day physical labor needed to keep the farm running smoothly.


Our volunteer program is designed to bring both volunteers and veterans who have a deep love and respect for horses (especially mustangs) together with horses that need love and respect. Our hope is that volunteers with acquire the knowledge to interact with horses in a positive manner. By learning and demonstrating levels of responsibility and knowledge, our volunteers will advance to the point of teaching others.
