I recognize that Hearts Landing Ranch is an organization that serves children and families. Because of this, I agree to dress appropriately, modestly and professionally while on the Ranch property. I understand as a volunteer, I am freely giving of my time in service to Hearts Landing Ranch and I have no expectation of compensation or payment of any kind. Participation & Volunteering at Hearts Landing Ranch is a privilege. By making a commitment to volunteer, showing up and learning HLR work processes and rules are important, otherwise horses and people suffer. I recognize that the administration of the Ranch reserves the right to remove this privilege at any time for any reason.
