Great and Small Volunteer Opportunities

Great and Small provides Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) to children and adults of all ages affected by a range of physical, developmental, emotional, and learning disabilities. Through a supportive and therapeutic engagement with horses we strengthen and empower our riders, helping them develop their full potential.

Great and Small would not be successful without the help of our wonderful volunteers! We are always searching for more helping hands for various activities including working with our program participants, general barn chores, schooling the horses (experienced riders only), and participating in committees/special events.

Lifeline Horse Rescue Volunteer Opportunities

Lifeline Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation, Inc. is a volunteer-based equine welfare organization in Gaithersburg that serves as a community resource for connecting horses in need to people who can help them. We provide help for abused, neglected, and/or unwanted horses via rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, and rehoming.

In addition, we strive to prevent abuse and neglect through educational programs and community outreach. We also look to give back to the community by means of interaction with the rescued horses. The populations we aim to serve include underprivileged children, veterans, military, first responders, and victims of abuse.

Lifeline Horse Rescue is always looking for volunteers to help around the farm. We welcome groups for specific projects or individual volunteers in our basic horse care program. We are approved by Montgomery County Public Schools for Student Service Learning (SSL). Our volunteers may earn SSL hours, work toward an internship or honors project, gain experience working with large animals, or fulfill other community volunteer requirements.
