"My treasures do not chink together or glitter; they gleam in the sun and neigh in the night."  attributed to Chaddaugh Gypsies of Galway

The policies have been designed to ensure both the safety and well-being of both the equine residents and volunteers.

Please take the time to click on the links at the bottom of the page, read the content, and become aquainted with the policies of the Horse Protection Society. 

It may appear that there are a lot of policies and procedures to remember and follow.  Please be assured that we have implemented these only so that we can be assured that each and every horse receives the consistent treatment he requires.


Often, the many tasks at the ranch are performed by two people.  people get very busy, and lack the time to answer questions, or provide demonstrations.  There will always be someone more than happy to listen, demonstrate, answer questions, or help.  It is the purpose of this manual to give an overview of how things are done at the ranch and to help our members feel more confident with the "jobs" they complete, and more satisfied with the time that they spend, at HPS. Joanie Benson is always happy to answer any questions.


Finally, please allow us to thank you for your contribution in making our horses happier and healthier.  Every action, however small it may be perceived by you, is appreciated more than you know.


Thank you and God bless you!
