"The benefits of volunteering are instantaneous! 

The children's smiles and giggles warm my heart, and remind me of why I'm here."


"I always get more than I give. 

If you want to do something wonderful for yourself, come be a volunteer!"



Anyone 14 years and older can be a Praying Hands Ranch Volunteer or donate in the following areas:


  • Office Work
  • Fundraising
  • Help with Grant writing
  • Hippotherapy programs 
  • Equine programs    
  • Horticulture/Craft programs and Sensory gardens
  • Small animal care


We are able to train volunteers helping with the Equine and Hippotherapy Programs regardless of experience. Here are some personal benefits you may gain when volunteering at Praying Hands Ranch:

  • A strong sense of accomplishment
  • An intimate bond between rider, volunteer, and horse
  • The joy of making new friends
  • Involvement with enthusiastic, unselfish, totally dedicated and committed volunteers
  • Learning new skills
  • Making a difference in the lives of others
  • Volunteers are able to observe first-hand how the lack of confidence is replaced with renewed self-esteem


Praying Hands Ranch currently needs volunteers for all class times.

Classes are held Monday - Thursday and on Saturday.  You choose the hours and the days that work best for you.
