Welcome Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at JHAR, there is nothing like spending time at this wonderful ranch we have a page of testimonials from current volunteers but words used to describe the experience as a volunteer here include extraordinary, therapeutic and blissful.  A morning on the Mesa mucking, grooming & riding (if you have the experience,) and or just spending time with these wonderful animals (and friends) is rewarding and typically lots of FUN..

Come join the JHAR family - Whether you are a seasoned equestrian or simply love being around horses and want to learn more about them, there is lots for you to do at the ranch!

  • Mucking & Grooming - Our corral's are clean, safe and well kept but we need MORE help to keep them that way.
  • Feeding & Hydration - Lend a hand at feeding time, fill and filter water troughs and help keep the ranch tidy.
  • Exercise & Trail Riding - We are not a riding stable but if you are willing to sign a release and have experience with rescue horses or horses with issues, WE NEED YOUR HELP to round pen, trail ride and exercise. 
  • Special Events -  We need help from time to time to take our show on the road to raise funds and awareness 
  • TRAINERS, Animal Heath Professionals, Farriers - We would love to hear from you 

Things To Know

We ask that at all times you put safety first for the benefit of everyone both  and especially the horses.  Here are a few guidelines but one of the most important things you will need to bring is a smile.  We muck in here (literally) and maintaining a happy, healthy attitude is vital to the other volunteers, founders / home owners and lets not forget the horses and other animals at the ranch.

  • All volunteers will be asked to sign a release and demonstrate riding ability and horse husbandry before riding or exercising our animals.
  • Please follow all directions

Come when you can but it is always nice to know you are coming.
