MISCELLANEOUS POSSIBILITIES
Volunteer Opportunities

My son and I are superintendents for the Roosevelt County Fair Horse
Show held in August each year. We can always use volunteers for the
day of. It is usually long, hot and a really good time. It takes place at
the Fair Grounds here in Portales.

Usually students and/or family members help with the pony ride
activities and education events where we take the ponies off the ranch
such as
Heritage days, Peanut Festival and KKM. Volunteers for these
activities need a little horse experience and you have had it through the
lessons.

At the ranch the horses can always use thorough grooming and there
are some 'in hand' exercising needs. When we have an abundant crop
of weeds, the horses can be taken grazing. We also offer a chance to
'hang with the herd' which is a great stress reliever for the human.

At the ranch we can always use help with watering, pressure washing
tanks, feeding, minor repairs and clean up, pen cleaning, tack cleaning
and lots more 'grunt' work.

RIDING ONE TIME

If you have never been on a horse and would like to try it, you may
without signing up for lessons. When I get a call of this sort, I have the
horse saddled and waiting for you.

If you have ridden and have the urge to get on a horse again, give me a
call.

You will sign a release form, put on helmet and boots (furnished), go to
the arena and mount up.

If the rider is a small child, an adult may need to accompany them and
lead the horse.
When would  you want to ride a horse?

Maybe to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.

Maybe you rode as a kid and just want to get back on.

Maybe you have never ridden and would like to experience it.
GIFT CERTIFICATES

When it is not practical to get the horse lover a horse as a present
consider a gift certificate for the occasion. It fits nicely into a small
space and you don't have any clean up.

JUST COME VISIT

If you like horses and just want to come visit for a little bit, call and we
can arrange it. I always like meeting horse people.
NON- RIDING FIELD TRIPS

We have been successful in scheduling field trips for different groups
who are interested in visiting a horse operation and schools looking for a
place for a class to go.

To do these, I have to have plenty of lead time. We need to work out
details and I need to find helpers for my end of the trip. Cost is
dependent upon what you want to happen as a result of coming here.

We have found that we are wheelchair accessible for field trips.  They
have been able to get to all the places on the tour.
