Equine Volunteers Background Check


Note: The Fair Credit Report Act (FCRA) requires an applicant’s written consent prior to a criminal background check. This includes independent contractors and freelance workers. When you purchase your $35 criminal background check, you receive the necessary consent form.

This is a criminal background check, not a credit check. There is no credit inquiry.



Screening Equine Volunteers

Before selecting equine volunteers that may handle money, work in close proximity to others’ children or drive young equestrians, invest $35 in this FRCA compliant equine volunteer background check. Take control, mitigate risk, and select equine volunteers confidently!
