Working side by side with B.O.K Ranch’s certified instructors and horses are over 100 program volunteers. The B.O.K. Ranch staff and volunteers work together to form a vital team that is essential to the success of our riders. Without the help of volunteers, there would be no program; we greatly appreciate the help of our dedicated and caring volunteers.

 

 

Volunteers assist with grooming, tacking, preparing students and horses for lessons, and general stable management. During lessons, horse handlers, sidewalkers and spotters are needed.

 

Prospective volunteers need not have experience with horses or experience with those with special needs. Volunteer trainings are held to orientate new volunteers and to provide them with the knowledge and skills necessary.

 

 

Because volunteers play such a vital role during lessons, we ask that volunteers commit to one morning or afternoon of classes.

 

Our updated Volunteer Handbook is available here.

 

 

 


Volunteer orientations are held periodically throughout the month.  Upcoming orientation dates to be announced!

To sign up now for a volunteer orientation, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteercoordinator@bokranch.org.
