About

By volunteering at our ranch and thrift store, you will be supporting rescued horses and children at risk in experiencing life changing programs! We also need fundraisers, event planners, Technology experts, computer people and many other types of talents to help run our organization.

BRHC utilizes volunteers to assist in classes and to evaluate, retrain and rehabilitate rescued horses so they may partner with us in our educational programs. We offer free training for our volunteers so they may assist in training the horses and in our educational programs for children. This training includes groundwork, de-sensitization, communication cues, round pen work, bodywork and riding. Volunteers are able to participate in all education programs and training at no charge.

There is something "magical" that happens when a horse shows a child (or adult) what they are thinking and how they are being, in ways they are not aware of. The horse essentially "tells" us when we are being successful or not, by being reflections for our behavior. Success in this regard, refers to those thoughts, attitudes and actions that need to be present to support a happy and fulfilling life.

The horse shows us when we are thinking good thoughts or bad thoughts, by being relaxed when we are thinking positive thoughts and being nervous and fearful when we are allowing negative thoughts. By thinking the correct thoughts, which directly affects our energy, the horse partners with us and will collaborate in all sorts of fun activities. Horses - because of their hyper-vigilance and loving, intelligent nature can raise our awareness about ourselves by being mirrors for our behavior.
