offered in person
We own 12 horses of many breeds which we share with "Horse Lovers Without Horses".
WE CURRENTLY HAVE VOLUNTEER AND SPONSORSHIP OPENINGS AVAILABLE.
We have, at times, gone years without an opening and they fill fast, so if you are interested, please contact via phone.
For many years I have procured horses and shared them. These horses come from many sources and situations.
Some were purchased from the stockyard, saving them from slaughter, some gifted from dying owners, mustangs purchased from BLM and some born here as our personal riding horses.
Such diversity in breeds and backgrounds expands the potential for extended learning.
I grew up on a ranch which delved into most anything they could do to make a living with horses. Dude string rentals, pack horses, summer camp, hay rides, pony ring, special events with our many horse drawn wagons, buying & selling, riding instruction, horse training & one son was a jockey... we competed in shows, rodeos and ropings etc etc...
So I have extremely diverse experience and greatly enjoy sharing the knowledge I have gained.
I have created a little club with a sponsorship program I call Equi-Share, and we also welcome volunteers to help and learn, no contribution required. .
I am very selective about who we invite to join because we want a cohesive group, with like goals, team players, good sportsmanship, passionate about horses and learning and unafraid to do the work required to maintain them.
The sponsorship program requires a $175 monthly contribution to the feed fund, a bucket of selected vitamins and cost for the farrier every 2 months.
My husband and I have acquired most of these horses and keep them specifically to share with others. We own all these horses and we do not board horses.
We provide all tack and supplies, instruction and transportation for participation in events and trail rides.
Once I decide that a member or sponsor has attained my required and adequate experience to visit the ranch unaccompanied, they will have 6 day a week access to visit their sponsored horse. Club meets every Saturday morning for instruction on care horsemanship at which time we do regular A.M. chores to give the ranch hand a day off.
My goal is to teach both volunteers and sponsors everything they can learn to enjoy being around or someday be a good horse owner. At least 2 Saturdays a month are required to learn and help maintain these goals.
This is a fun and worthwhile program. This is not a business. This is not a fancy horse facility. This is just this Grandma and Grandpas home with a little ranch of healthy happy horses here to make irreplaceable memories and amazing smiles.
