City Limits Ranch

How You Can Help

Volunteer: our volunteers run the place.   You can help any way that you are inclined, cleaning pens and troughs, grooming and exercising horses, maintaining the buildings, building new structures, supervising the wonderful kids or just loving the animals.  Natural horsemanship experience is not required, we can teach you if you want to learn.


Purchase your  own natural horsemanship equipment through our affiliate program with   our locally owned and operated Natural horsemanship. Go to our Links page and click on the horsefriendly link to buy your Natural Horsemanship and training equipment.  International orders are welcome!  Get high quality halters, leads and much more, support local business and the nonprofit gets a donation of 10% of your purchase automatically. Or buy something  from our wishlist and donate it  to the ranch.  We get much needed equipment and the 10% donation also. 


Donations: We will always accept tack, horse, and barn equipment. Child size things are great and always needed, from saddles to safe helmets, everything helps out!  Money is always good and is much appreciated.  Your donation is fully tax deductible. It costs us about $1500 a month to feed our horses and provide their routine hoof care.  All our ranch labor is volunteer.  100% of your donation goes directly to the horses and the facility.
