The FMF Volunteer Program gives riders, families, and friends the opportunity to volunteer at FMF events to learn more about the world of horse showing and to earn volunteer hours for farm credit.

Each person (ages 10+) that volunteers earns hours. For example, if a rider and their parent both volunteer for 3 hours each, they earn 6 hours total. Children must be at least 10 years old to volunteer at an event without an adult.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Keep an eye on the list below, the information board in the Grooming Barn, the FMF Facebook page, and your email for volunteer opportunities.
  2. Sign up for a block of hours on the sign-up sheet(s) for the event(s) you want to volunteer at. (If there is not a sign-up sheet, contact Ms. Chris to let her know when you’ll be available.)
  3. Record your hours on your Volunteer Log.
  4. Once you have earned 10 hours, just place your completed Volunteer Log in one of the Payment Boxes at the barn. (You can also submit hours in multiples of 10; i.e., 20, 40, 50 hours, etc.)
  5. When we receive your completed Volunteer Log, we will credit your Hopoti account with 1 group lesson for every 10 hours earned.
A Special Note to FMF Riders showing at one of our events (this includes all in-house shows and Horse Trials):

FMF students riding in FMF events are required to volunteer for two hours at the event. As you know, we couldn’t do it without you! There are usually a few work hours available the night before an event and early in the morning the day-of. Unfortunately, most of our needs occur during the event. We will schedule with your requests and your ride-times in mind.

If you have a conflict on the day of the event, you have the option of providing a responsible substitute (e.g., parent, sibling, friend) to take your work hours for you. We appreciate your understanding as we work on scheduling and job assignments!
