Donate Time or Wish List Items


We need volunteers at the ranch to help with grooming, re-training, holding horses for farrier and vet, and general tasks such as stall mucking and tack cleaning. Horse experience is mandatory in order to handle the horses. Those who wish to help with the re-training process must provide references. Even if you can only commit to one or two days a month, it would help out immensely and be greatly appreciated.

We need volunteers to make farm visits (requires horse experience in order to assess facilities), take photographs, and help coordinate or assist at fundraising events.

We also need volunteers who can transport horses. You must have your own truck, trailer, insurance, valid driver's license and a clean driving record. Please contact us ASAP if you are available to donate your resources and time.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
