FAQ's


What do your programs offer?
  
Participants at Hay Day Ranch will participate in a variety of activities with the central focus on equine assisted learning. Participants learn how "read"  a horse - movements, expressions and body language so they can gain trust to approach, mount and ride. Sessions include an activity such as a craft and a snack. Take a look at our pictures for examples of activities. 

  
How do your programs work to help kids?
  
Participants must learn to trust the horses, requiring focus and patience. Horses respond by "mirroring", they too develop patience with the rancher, building a trusting relationship between horse and child. Working with horses is challenging and enjoyable, helping kids build confidence, patience, and trust.  


Why do you need so much information?

Working around and with horses requires that we take all precautions so that ranchers, guardians, volunteers and others are aware of the risks. The forms have information that makes all aware of these risks, and provides Hay Day Ranch with information that will help us make the experience safe for all.
  

How is personal information on the forms protected?

Hay Day Ranch values your privacy and security. We keep all personal, sensitive information (documents) in locked file cabinets in the Hay Day Ranch office.
  

How long will it take for my application to be processed?

Applications are processed in the order they are received. Applications with incomplete or missing information will not be processed; a Hay Day Ranch representative will notify applicants if unable to process. 


How long will it take for my application to be processed?

We take care to maximize the safety of all visitors to Hay Day Ranch - ranchers, volunteers, staff and horses. Volunteers are trained and experienced, and have passed a confidential background check.


What safety precautions do you take?

We require all riders to wear approved riding helmets and sturdy closed toes shoes. Horses are screened for temperament and will always have a trusted and experienced volunteer handling the session with the participant. Horses can still be unpredictable, but our combination of approved equipment and experienced handlers help assure safety for all.


What if I'm afraid of horses, or have never ridden one?

Not to worry! We take it slow, always within the full comfort level of the participant. Some may not ever ride, but the process of loving, grooming and caring for the horse builds trust between horse and rancher. Each participant is unique and we are careful to plan sessions to meet the needs and comfort level of the participant. No prior experience with horses is needed.
