Calling all Raynham boarders, lesson students, show students & their families! We’re always working to improve the facilities here at Raynham Stables to make it a better place to ride. Here’s your chance to be a part of it! 

As always, we have a ton of projects to tackle around the farm!  There are so many things to do this year that we are planning TWO volunteer days!   The volunteer days will run 9:00am - 4:00pm but you do not need to stay all day, any help is appreciated!    We hope to see many Raynham riders out to lend a hand!  There will be jobs appropriate for younger students as well as parents (Dads - we're looking at you!).

Jobs include:

- Finish fencing in back field

We will be holding a raffle for horses prizes and some FREE private lessons (jumping or dressage, your choice!) at the end of the day.  You get a ticket to put into the draw for each hour that you are here helping out!  Also we will be providing a BBQ lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

Thanks in advance for your support!
