Rockin' Horse Ranch

We are generous and easy-going and provide mostly organic food. We have 4 horses, 40 chickens, 2 dogs and 3 cats, and a big comfortable house with beautiful views. Our property backs to the US Forest Service so there are endless trails to ride the horses or hike. There are rivers, lakes and a ski hill nearby (Lost Trail Powder Mountain). During the warmer months, there are fun rodeos in the town of Darby and other events and fun things to do, We prefer to host intermediate to advanced horse people and/or people with handyman and gardening skills.

My husband Jim and I treat our volunteers like family. We need at least one volunteer to help out at all times of the year (but we usually have at least 2-3 at a time). You will have your own private bedroom and two of the bedrooms have a television in them. There is a great room with a large screen TV as well where the volunteers hang out. We allow volunteers with a driver's license to use our car for short excursions, like to the lake, river, and town of Darby. Experienced volunteers can ride as much as the horses can tolerate, although we only give credit for 1 hour a day of riding/working with the horses unless you are a qualified horse trainer and there is a special training project. As soon as the dates are confirmed, I send the volunteers a more detailed/full description of the volunteer program.

It was a truly incredible experience! From the very first moments, I felt like I was in a western movie, so beautiful is the house, the ranch and even the town!
Having your own room is a real plus, and you'll have free time to enjoy the horses and nature. And you won't lack for anything in terms of food or drink!
I'm going to miss all the animals in this house (dogs, cats, horses of course and even the chickens 😂) because they're incredible, I couldn’t dream of better animals❤️

I would like to thank Donna and Jim again for their hospitality and for this great opportunity!

Donna was amazing! And her wonderful husband Jim. They are truly incredible people who have created an amazing place for volunteers to come stay and work. I didn’t expect how much amazing opportunities she would supply around the house and what not. They are just so awesome!

This experience was something for the books! It was truly the best experience I could have asked for. Jim and Donna are the sweetest people you could ask for to be your hosts. This was our first Worldpacker experience, and I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience. Their house was beautiful, and the horses, cats, dogs, and chickens were amazing! I wish everyone could experience something like that!! I wish I could come back and experience it over and over again!!!!
