Hands that freely give are the life of the ranch.
As a volunteer, you are invaluable to Hope Reigns, the horses, and the individuals and families we serve.
Here at Hope Reigns, there are volunteer opportunities for everyone. From part-time to full-time. From barn crew to mentors. There are even group volunteer opportunities.
Much of our daily chore list is completed by groups of individual adults, parents, and kids working side by side. We love having families volunteer together. It's a great way for families to bond while working together. If you have a specific skill or gift that you would like to offer, be sure to indicate that on your application. As the ranch grows, so does the need for individuals who can serve full time. We deeply appreciate those who desire to come and offer themselves in service for an extended period of time.
We truly appreciate our volunteers and everything they do at the ranch. Hope Reigns is solely operated on dedicated volunteers and we couldn't do it without them!
Here are just a few volunteer opportunities:
Hay Crew (seasonal)
Team Hope Mentors (training required)
Graphics / Photography / Media
Approved Youth Volunteer (ages 13 - 17)
Each has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of
God's varied grace. ~1 Peter 4:10 (ESV)
All Hope Reigns volunteers who are interested in working directly with the horses start out on BARN CREW. This can be disappointing if a volunteer has their heart set on working directly with the horses. Starting out on Barn Crew allows you to get to know each horse's personality and learn herd behavior. It's important to get to know each horse individually and the herd as a whole.
First and foremost SAFETY! Many Hope Reigns' horses have been found abandoned, starving, and/or neglected which can often lead to trust and relationship issues. Horses are flight or fight animals and SAFETY is their #1 priority too. These horses are in the process of being rehabilitated, which takes time, patience, and experience.
All effort is made to teach, encourage, and empower each volunteer who comes to the ranch to serve others, horses, and Christ. Here at Hope Reigns Ranch, we are committed to helping those who want to help the horses. We build on the positives and consistency to create a safe environment for both horse, volunteer, and those who participate in our other programs. With dedication and commitment, there are opportunities for meaningful involvement and increasing responsibility over time for all volunteers.
