Welcome Rylin, weekend helper

Fall 2023.  Welcome Jessica!

Jessica has excellent horse experience and previous experience working in a barn situation.  She has full-time jobs in Sioux Falls but gives us a few days/shifts each week, which we very much appreciate.

Super Volunteer Zenna

Zenna is our teenager super volunteer! She has been coming to help with chores many Sunday mornings - in rain, snow, and shine - for 2 or 3 years now. Zenna was born and raised in Sioux Falls. She attended Tri-Valley for a few years, then moved closer to town and now goes to Roosevelt High School.  She has always dreamed of working with horses, and now New Hope Horse Shelter is helping her learn the basics of horse care, making that dream come true. Thanks for all your help, Zenna! We love having you here.

Autumn helps us with morning chores and is learning how to ride!
her family lives just a few miles from us.

Cooper helps us with chores too. His family also lives just a few miles from us.

Greg and Ralphie.
