Summary

Wild Horse Mustang Rescue

Volunteer for a minimum of 1 week up to a maximum of 8 weeks at this great project in Florida! Care for the horses, clean their stables, feed them, wash them, socialize with them and go for horse trail rides! Travel to Florida's east coast to a ranch locked between forests, lagoons and the ocean with it's beautiful beaches! The minimum age to be accepted at this project is 17 years of age!

Mustangs were introduced to the US as domestic horses in the early 1500’s by the Spaniards. These horses later formed a large wild population and came to play a critical role in the building of America. The United States is virtually built on their backs. Now, when they are not needed for labor and transport anymore, they are sadly being mistreated and exploited at the hands of man. In the early 1900’s, the wild mustang population was estimated to be over 2 million. Today, there are only 40,000 left in the wild and about as many in captivity in need of rescue. Caring for a wild horse is drastically different than caring for a tame one, sadly, this is often leads to mistreatment and neglect of wild mustangs in captivity.

If this speaks to you then venture to beautiful Florida and help with the day to day activities and rescue and rehabilitate wild mustang horses! This project is in need of your help all year round! This project is located between ranchland, forests, lagoons, wetlands and the ocean a recipe for amazing trail rides!

About Fronteering

FRONTEERING aims to arrange volunteer abroad and adventure travel experiences in places less visited and unspoiled. FRONTEERING’s projects help with true good causes in some of the last frontiers. Places where the need is greater, where there is more to lose and much more to gain. Join one of FRONTEERINGS Volunteer Abroad projects and visit these last frontiers while they are yet unspoiled and hopefully through our combined efforts we can keep it that way!

Imagine the sounds of night fading away while in the distance the horizon starts to brighten. You wake up listening to a serenade of thousands of tropical birds and an awakening jungle. Parrots fly overhead with their loud squawks, howler monkeys greet the sun with loud voices while you relax a few more minutes in your jungle hammock! Staring through the jungle canopy you see the blue sky lightening up between the trees.
It is this experience common in some of our volunteer projects and adventure travel trips in Central & South America that got me involved in setting up volunteer projects and adventure travel trips to help with long term sustainability of our last wildernesses and to protect it’s wildlife and the way of life of indigenous communities.
