Volunteers/Unpaid Internships

Like all of our staff our volunteers/unpaid interns are interviewed, trained and accountable.

In keeping with our professional horse keeping standards, we carefully screen each intern applicant at professional standards and have an initial orientation with Dr. Hannah on a one-on-one basis so that she is able to determine your strengths and fit you perfectly within our farm community.

We rely on our volunteer/unpaid internship help to keep Cedarbrook Farms beautiful and sustainable so that we can continue to be a place of healing for animals and people in our community. Cedarbrook Farms offers discounts/donations to rescue horses that come to the farm for rehabilitation and Cedarbrook Veterinary Care also offers discounts/donations to rescue organizations for veterinary services through our rescue horse rehabilitation program. Your volunteer hours not only benefit you with an educational experience, but also help to offset the farm maintenance and horse management costs that come with helping the horses in our community. We also host an Equine Facilitated Mental Health and Learning program at Cedarbrook Farms, and the beautiful, sanctuary-like setting of the farm provides a place of mutual healing for both people and horses. Keeping the farm beautifully maintained helps Dr. Hannah and both Cedarbrook Veterinary Care and Cedarbrook Farms programs.

Come and enjoy the physical and emotional benefits of life on a horse farm while learning from our expert staff! Does a day away from the city, exploring in our woods, and helping to maintain our trails or building new campsite areas sound fun? Do you like gardening and the methodical satisfaction of weeding, watering, and watching things grow? Do you need some time to slow down and reconnect with animals and nature, or do you enjoy the physical outlet of poop scooping? We sure do!

If you are interested...

Life on the farm feeds our heart and souls and keeps us fit and in tune with the natural world around us. We give back to our long-term volunteers/unpaid interns by allowing them to enjoy spending time at the farm connecting with the horses on a case-by-case basis, walking/jogging our trails, or simply having meditative time in nature. Often we are able to team volunteers/unpaid interns up with an appropriately matched resident horse that they can build a relationship with while here, a win-win for both horse and human.

Our caretaking duty shifts vary but typically start at 7:00 a.m. and at 5 p.m. If you are interested in work parties or specific farm projects, please let us know. Times/hours vary and can be flexible! Your help is greatly appreciated and we welcome you to join our Cedarbrook Farms community!

Contact our Office

If you are new to horses or a child, you must be actively enrolled in our horsemanship program to have hands-on interaction with the horses. There are plenty of other things for you to participate in at the farm if you are not able to enroll in the horsemanship program. Children must be accompanied by an experienced adult at all times.

If you are interested in one of these opportunities, contact our office at (360) 794-9255 or email us at
