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.
