We are excited to officially launch Royale Equestrian Centre’s volunteer program!  Volunteers are an important part of the Royale Equestrian Centre family and we wouldn’t be where we are today without all of our hard working volunteers!  

We welcome volunteers over 10 years of age. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be students of Royale Equestrian Centre Lesson Program. We also accept a number of High School Co-Op Students and Students that required their 40hrs of Community Service.   Horse experience is an asset, but not required as we conduct training sessions on an ongoing basis.   We encourage volunteers of all abilities to apply and we have something for everyone! *Parents may be required to remain on site for younger volunteers depending on their age and experience with horses*.

Members of the Royale volunteer program have exclusive access to volunteer training sessions that will give them the confidence and skills they need to move up the steps in our volunteer levels. Volunteers will receive an electronic copy of our volunteer handbook, which outlines the skills you will learn at each level of our volunteer program.

We also have an exciting rewards program!   Volunteers are entered into draws where they will have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes such as:  Royale clothing, discounts, complimentary entry into horse shows, lessons and more! Our volunteer program is constantly evolving and the prizes change frequently to keep things exciting.  

The date of our next volunteer prize draw is: May 1st, 2019
