Jessica Harrell

PATH Registered Instructor

Jessica loves coming up with games and activities that benefit her riders.  She the favorite of many of our participants, as she provides a good mix of fun and structure into her lessons.  Jessica currently competes in Cowboy Mounted Shooting all over the southern United States, including at the CMSA World Competition.

We couldn't do it without them! They are home makers, retirees, high school and college students, civic organization members, horse enthusiasts, and everything in between. The one thing they all have in common is the desire to help others!

Volunteering is a wonderful way to give back to the community and make a difference in someone's life! It's also a great way to learn about and enjoy horses without having the expense of owning one. Please contact us if you or someone you know is interested. Having horse knowledge does help, but anyone over the age of 14 can volunteer. Check out the Events Page for dates and times for training.
