  • Do you want to learn more about horse care, handling, and riding?
  • Do you enjoy being around horses but, cannot afford it?

  • Do you want to gain some experience in the horse industry?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then, Double Star Ranch's Work-to-Ride Program may be for you! In this program you would come out about once a week (more is OK too) and help out with some of the many chores that need doing in exchange, you will get to enjoy time riding one of our excellent horses.

Some tasks that you may be asked to do would be feeding and watering horses, cleaning the pens, grooming the horses, cleaning tack, help with marketing, aid in general maintenance, help clear the trails, and helping with extra various extra tasks. We would love to be able to utilize any special skills you may have that could help us so, feel free to share these skills with us.

The extent of riding privileges would depend on your riding abilities and style. A more experienced rider may be allowed to take a horse out on their own while a less experienced/skilled rider may be supervised while riding. Lessons are available for those who desire at no charge in this program. If you don't want to actually go riding, you don't have to. You can enjoy the peaceful time with and around the horses outdoors without actually riding should you choose.
