Work at the Centre is all focused on helping the horses. Apart from the elements in the Example Weekly Itinerary below, you could also take part in Vet visits and new rescue missions, should they arise during your project. The work schedule is structured in two work shifts. One morning and one afternoon. Each work shift is about 2 hours. Breaks can be taken any time. Other than work, here will be activities such as riding and socializing with the horses.
This is an example of your weekly itinerary:
This day will change and this is only a very rough guide - your schedule will depend on what time your arrive

5 pm- Freshen up and start to make dinner.

Diane will tell you about the problems wild mustangs face in the US, how most of the horses come to Centre, how she works with them, that some horses will always be wild, why they do not breed the horses, etc. Diane and/or a volunteer coordinator will tell you what the schedule for today will be, i.e., what chores the morning and afternoon work shifts will include. Your daily tasks will include:
This day will change according to whether it's your last day and you're leaving, or not.
