Volunteering can include anything from working with kids and horses, barn chores, ground maintenance, etc.
Hay Day Ranch is built on the faith and hope of Susan Hingst, a Virginia based teacher, horse enthusiast, and child advocate. The ranch is the realization of Susan’s vision to combine rescue horses in equine assisted learning to restore emotional ties and trust in both the horses and troubled youth. The program is for children ages 5 to 18.
Equine assisted learning and healing is the discipline of using horses as a therapeutic experience. There are many positive benefits for those who participate in equine activity programs: communications skills, impulse control, patience, confidence, boundaries and trust.
