Before and After

Majestic Hills Ranch is looking for volunteers to help military veterans that are in rehabilitation or have medical concerns with their therapeutic horseback riding lessons. We need help on Tuesdays (2 pm - 4 pm & 5 pm - 7 pm) & Thursdays (2 pm - 7 pm) starting the first week in May.

Volunteers must be at least 20 years old, able to walk in a sandy arena for about an hour at a time, and to be able to safely remove an adult rider from a horse in an emergency. Horse and animal experience is NOT needed, just the desire to help our riders, enjoy the outdoors, and work with animals. Training is provided. Please email for details.

Because of COVID, we are requiring some mask usage (when we are all together in common areas) and will require vaccinations. Many of our riders have compromised immune systems, so we are taking extra precautionsfor their health and safety.
