If any of you are reading this from England (Bucks) then help if you can, spread the word to everyone that you know - Help is needed this summer....

Horse Trust needs Buckinghamshire volunteers over the summer

Nick West, H&H news desk

7 August, 2009

The Horse Trust, the famous horse sanctuary in Buckinghamshire, has put out an urgent plea for volunteers for the busy summer season.

Based at Speen, near High Wycombe, the charity's home of rest is a favourite attraction for horse lovers.

Over the years it has taken in hundreds of horses, including retired military horses such as those injured when the IRA bombed the Queen's Lifeguard — a detachment of the Household Cavalry — in the early 1980s, the most famous of which was Sefton.

Yard manager, Shirley Abbott, said: "This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves being around horses.

"Volunteers are needed to help out with a variety of activities around the yard including grooming, bathing the horses, mucking out, gardening, selling ice creams and helping the general public."

There are also office positions in welfare, fundraising and administration.

74-year old Pat Audley, who recently lost her husband Harry, said: "The staff and horses here have really helped me get over the loss of Harry. I feel calmer when I'm here.

"Volunteering for The Horse Trust is a lifeline for me. My favourite job is taking the two drum horses, Leo and Janus, out to the fields. When they get near the gate, they can't wait to get their halters off and bound off into the fields. It's very rewarding."

Volunteers are needed for every day of the week (7.30am-4.30pm) but particularly between 2pm-4pm, when the sanctuary is open to the public.

All volunteers are buddied up with a Horse Trust employee to help them through the early days and are given health and safety training. You have to be at least 15 years old.

If you'd like to get involved, call Shirley on 01494 488464 or email her at

I am happy to report that we start the year with a new Resume/Cover Letter Uploader Utility. Now you can upload cover letters or resumes instead of having to copy and paste them. We have tested this from creation of a new resume all the way through to the employer level where they can view the uploaded files.
When creating a new resume, you can use the resume builder or you can “Copy and Paste Your Resume” to upload your resume file. We have set it up to accept the following formats (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .pdf).
If you would think we need to add other file types, please let us know and we will accommodate you as best we can.
As always we value your feedback and are committed to making this the BEST employment website for the Canadian Equine Industry.

We hope this new service is of help to you - We feel it sends a much more professional resume out to the employers and allows you to send a customized resume just the way YOU like it! :)
