Ivey Ranch is a Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) and Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) Premier Accredited Equestrian Facility.  We host horseback riding therapy for clients with special needs and different abilities. Our volunteers are how we can serve this special community. Volunteers not only help care for the horses but help our riders have their riding experience. An equestrian volunteer has the option to participate in several programs depending on their age and availability.

Requirements for NEW equestrian volunteers:

The best part about volunteering with our Equestrian program is that there is no horse experience necessary! We will teach you everything you need to know. Equestrian volunteers, adults and children (minimum age is 9), must participate in an orientation and complete an application prior to participating in the program.
