Wild Horse Rescue Intern

Wild Horse Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity located on a rural Mc Dermott property in Scioto County, Ohio. The farm features Equine of all types. Many have been abused or starved at one point in their lives and need human interaction. Natural Horsemanship methods are used for caring for the animals. Understanding herd behavior and how they react to pressure is required of all applicants.  The intern will be supervised and assisted when needed for safety purposes. All work with the horses is determined by round pen conditions due to weather. The intern must have extensive experience around horses as most of the horses here have been abused and/or have poor ground manners due to lack of proper training.

The intern should live in the area and provide their own transportation to and from the facility. Unfortunately, Wild Horse Rescue cannot pay for the services nor provide any benefits other than knowledge of the equine handling. Interested interns can contact Betty Davison via e-mail and include their phone number with a convenient time for receiving calls.
