ROUND UP TEAM
For All Ages
“Round Ups” are group experiences for kids and teens at the ranch. Groups have several activities to choose from and we are looking for volunteers who can serve occasionally with this team to help with painting a pony, fishing or just hanging out with kids who want to brush a horse.
With 15 acres to manage and maintain there is never a shortage of mowing and small projects that require some manual labor. The property team helps to care for the property and enable the environment of the ranch to be well maintained for all our guests. No horse experience required.
HERD CARE TEAM
This is an opportunity to see to the regular, daily needs of the horses, such as feeding, watering, cleaning pastures/stalls, and grooming/bathing. Introductory exposure to horses needed.
Keeping a nonprofit running requires data and files and sometimes paperwork. We would love to have your organizational skills help keep us moving forward. No horse experience required.
Group & community Service
Whether youth groups, mission teams, community groups, or business teams, we love when groups come out together to serve at the ranch! No horse experience required.
