We run a non-profit organization rescuing abused, abandoned, and unwanted horses in Montana, USA. We then train the horses for use in therapy programs at our facility and across the country.
We live in a small rural community and areworking on becoming as self sustaining. We are currently also working towards bringing at risk youth to a summer camp at our facility to have therapeutic riding sessions, equine assisted psychotherapy lessons and introduce them to a sustainable lifestyle.
Besides horses on the farm we also have cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, a large vegetable garden, and are working on an orchard.
Our goal is to produce the majority of meat and produce we consume and to introduce youth a lifestyle that focuses on caring for the land, animals, and others around them.
The farm sits on 50 acres of land in the high desert. Our summers are mild and the winters full of snow and nights by the wood stove.
Our home has been and will always be open to anyone and everyone in need. From people seeking shelter from the bitter cold to a tiny abandoned mouse we do all that we can to make everyone feel welcome.

Coming to help here is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to learn about horses, sustainable living, or to make an impact on other people's lives.
Montana, USA is also a hub of outdoor activities hiking, biking, gorgeous hot springs, and amazing national parks. There is so much to see and do here. We like to hike and trail ride on our time off and would be overjoyed to share our favorite places with volunteers!
We are looking for people interested in helping with daily farm chores, such as feeding the animals, maintaining the property, and helping to work with horses. Sidewalking during lessons, which is walking alongside the horse to keep the rider safe.
We are also looking for people who like to build to help with shelters and fencing for the animals, rooms and lodging for campers, and house upkeep.
We are also open to people with horse lesson experience to help expand our program.

We have a large private room and bath, overlooking the barn and pasture, on the second floor of our home for volunteers.
We will cook meals daily and you are welcome to join in! The majority of what we cook is grown on the property collected or picked fresh daily, even in the dead of winter from our hot bed gardens.
We are minutes away from hiking trails and 2 hours from Yellowstone National Park. In the winter months their are 2 ski slopes nearby and many snowmobile trails. We are also more than happy to teach horseback riding to volunteers and take them trail riding.
We are simple people that enjoy good food and friends. We love to have movie nights in front of the wood stove in winter with homemade hot chocolate (the kind you make on the stove, not the instant kind) and fresh popped popcorn.
We love to enjoy evenings in the summer outside grilling food and talking until the sun sets.
We love to hike and explore all that is around us and enjoy the beauty of nature.
In the mornings we like to enjoy coffee and watch the sunrise from the kitchen while cooking breakfast and talking about our plans for the day.
We are hardworking and expect those who come here to be as well but we also believe that taking time to stop and relax at the end of the day and enjoy the company of friends and family is extremely important.
