Volunteer With Spirit Song Youth Equestrian Academy

Volunteer opportunities abound at a non-profit facility our size. With so many horses to feed and care for, our Volunteers are the backbone of all we do here at Spirit Song Youth Equestrian Academy.

Our volunteers help in so many ways – from grooming horses, to mucking out stalls. They help care for the grounds, maintain our facilities, greet our campers and guests, and set the bar for what it means to lead by example. Volunteers come from all backgrounds, have varied life experiences, and vary widely in age. From high school students looking for a summer experience, to retirees wanting to engage in something new, we welcome your inquiries!

Spirit Song Youth Equestrian Academy is located outside Anna, Texas. So it makes sense that we first look to our local communities for the volunteer help that we need. If you live in the area and are curious about our facility, our team and our work, we invite you to read on.

I was made to feel love from everyone on the staff. I felt comfortable and didn’t worry about making a mistake, because I always worry about saying the wrong thing or making mistakes. Horses are the biggest animal I have ever had contact with they were so gentle and friendly. I had no fear of judgement from anyone or the horses. The horses liked me without me even having to talk. They liked me for me. The horses were so gentle and kind. Spirit Song was amazing.
