I remember a couple of years ago I went to the therapeutic ranch as a volunteer to walk along the side of the horses to make sure the kids and adults rode safely. I was amazed at how much they loved the horses and knew so much about them. It was such a humbling and bonding experience to be able to work with special need children and adults. Runnin’ WJ Ranch is always looking for volunteers and I highly encourage you to do this one day as it will change your life forever.
So, it’s very important that you attend the Barrel Races so that the money raised can continue to help children and adults with specific needs.
