Starting this year, Working Students will have the option of adding Horse Husbandry studies to their experience here at the farm. Students will work through a series of topics and assignments, and at the end of each section, students who complete all assignments with a good level of effort will be entered into a draw for a $50 gift certificate for a store of their choice.
Working Students can also submit their high school volunteer hour sheets for verification. We also accept High School Co-operative Students!.
Our Working Students are the backbone of our farm and programs here at McWatt Family Farms.
Students need to be at least 12 years old, and need not have any horse experience when they start.
Students commit to one evening a week to help with chores, and also come out on Saturdays 9am - 12 noon.
In exchange for farm chores, students get to work on their riding skills, learn about horses and other farm animals. Interested? Contact us!
There is a yearly fee of $75 to cover insurance expense related to this program. All Working Students who wish to ride off property MUST be OEF members.
