Group Riding Sessions
Group Ranch Experience and Riding Sessions are scheduled events, coordinated between the ranch and an organization (e.g., BBBS, YMCA, 4H, American Heritage Girls, etc.) in which organization leaders bring their group to experience the Ranch and ride in the arena, led by our Ranch Staff Ride Leaders.
Workdays are scheduled events, coordinated between the Ranch and a company or organization (e.g., church youth group, Girl Scouts Troop, etc.) in which tasks are designated and assigned for participant teams of adults and/or children to accomplish to help the Ranch.
Juvenile Community Service
The Ranch provides opportunities for youths needing to fulfill community service hours per the Allen County Sheriff’s Department. Participant youths’ parents or guardians coordinate with staff to come to the Ranch and perform tasks and chores alongside a designated Staff Volunteer with subsequent visits until community service time requirements are fulfilled.
Bereaved Recovery and Therapeutic Horse Experience
The program is a non-riding Ranch experience intended to place family members into a real ranch environment, surrounded by nature. During this experience, participants will be guided and supported by Ranch staff in structured activities.
Adult/Family Volunteer Development Program
The Adult/Family Volunteer Staff Development Program recruits, onboards and develops adults 18+ in becoming part of our Volunteer Staff. Ranch Leaders provide all training and no prior horse experience is required. Parents or guardians may bring along their children to help in their volunteer service, provided they remain under direct supervision of the parent or guardian and adhere to all Ranch safety guidelines.
