About

The beauty of Reigning Grace is a ministry all its own. Many of our visitors ask for nothing more than the chance to sit a while and bask in the peaceful environment. Creating and maintaining this environment has proven to be quite a challenge. However, our volunteer force has been invaluable in keeping things going. A trip here will prove this, as the hands of those who freely give their time have built so much of this peaceful place. Reigning Grace is a ranch...but at its core it is a family. We are simply a group of people who choose to serve God, love children, horses, each other, and give our time to these passions. Whether our "family members" are staff, volunteers, parents, visitors, children, or horses, each one is significant and cherished. As a Mentor your main goal will be to work side by side with a child and a horse and to help that child develop his/her horsemanship skills to the best of their ability as well as foster a caring connection between the three of you. You are a facilitator, and as such it will be your responsibility to keep your child safe while helping them learn to draw the parallels between what they are learning with their horse and how to apply those principals to their everyday life. *Please note any volunteer working specifically with youth maybe required to obtain a fingerprint card at your own cost and a criminal background check.

Please understand that this does require a committment. No experience necessary! See below.

COMMITMENT: work with a child one time a week for 1 ½ hour sessions for a complete season. Each season is approximately 8 weeks. Must arrive at least 10 minutes before sessions begin, and cannot miss more than two sessions in a 8-week period.
