Shelby Farms Stables

Volunteers will stay at our ranch in Hernando, Mississippi just 20 miles South of Memphis, Tennessee. Memphis has long been known to be the birthplace of music in America. There are lots of adventures and places to explore in the area. At the stables where you will be working it is located within a 4,500 acre park that has 40 miles of hiking and biking trails. It also has kayaking and boating. At our ranch we have a stocked lake where you will be able to fish and paddle board. You will love the Memphis area with its great food, music scene and so many things to do.

I have been involved with and worked with horses all my life. Our staff of 12 employees and volunteers are all passionate about horses. We have a lot of fun with our work and love introducing our customers to the horse riding experience. We are more like a family than co- workers. You will find that our staff will all be anxious to help show and share with you Memphis and all it has to offer. Although you will be staying at our ranch just South of Memphis, you will be transported back and forth to the stables in Memphis on your work days as well as any days you want to explore Memphis.

I don‘t even know where to start! This was my first workexchange experience and I loved every second about it! Working at the stables actually never felt like work because I loved every second! Eric is an amazing and extremely funny host! He really wants everyone to feel comfortable and it felt like home to me. I even extended my stay from 4 to 6 weeks and even after that, I did not want to leave. I highly recommend staying at Eric‘s place! If you have experience with horses and if you love interacting with people (and his dog Bella), then I recommend his place a 1000%. Can‘t wait to be back!!

Super welcoming hosts! Truly felt apart of everything and every need was met. I met the most lovely people and can't wait to see some in London soon (you know who you are). If you're thinking about applying definitely do! I learnt lots about horses and can't wait to get more involved at my local stables back home. Thanks for a great experience!
