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.
Here’s how it works: (1) Check the website, the information board in the barn, and your email for volunteer activities. (2) Sign up for a block of hours on the sign-up sheet (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 Hours Log. (4) Once you have earned 10 hours, deduct $36 from your payment and turn in your completed Log with your payment (treat the Log as though it is cash). You may use Volunteer Hours to cover an Full Moon Farm expenses, with the exception of farrier services.
Each person that volunteers earns hours. For example, if a young 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.
FMF students riding in FMF events are required to give two hours of volunteer time to 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!
