NEW VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION
Please join us for new volunteer orientation! To ensure the safety of our volunteers and our animals, all volunteers must participate in an orientation session. Training will include basic safety rules and learning how we muck stalls, clean and fill water tanks, care for horses, and general ranch maintenance. We will also cover basic horse handling including safety, grooming, haltering and leading. We will introduce you to our horses and other animal residents, the property, and other volunteers.
Allegiance Ranch relies on the support of volunteers and donors to care for and run the ranch. We welcome volunteers of all ages, however a parent or guardian must accompany children under the age of 16. No prior experience is required, but certainly helpful. Closed-toe sturdy shoes are required when working at the ranch. Companion animals are not permitted on the ranch for their safety and the safety of our animals. Once you have completed orientation, you may sign up for regular volunteer shifts.
Please complete the volunteer application form and liability waiver (available at the bottom of this page) before attending the orientation session. We look forward to meeting you!
UPCOMING ORIENATION DATES:

We need you! Allegiance Ranch needs boots on the ground to help us achieve our vision. Volunteer jobs include stacking and throwing hay, mucking stalls, making minor repairs, building fences, helping with marketing and special events, grooming horses, training* and more.
If you have a special skill to offer, we can probably find a way to use it!
If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the Volunteer Information Form along with the Allegiance Ranch Liability Waiver and send both forms to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via snail mail to 3448 County Road 4, Erie, CO 80516. We will review your information and contact you about attending a volunteer orientation session.
* Volunteers who handle horses will be required to demonstrate previous horse handling and training experience.
