Become a Sustainer

RHR Sustainers make convenient ongoing contributions throughout the year that are automatically drafted each month. It’s an easy and efficient way to support all the RHR programs our community relies on through secure, automatic monthly payments from your credit card, debit card, or bank account. This means we’ll deduct your designated contribution from your account until you decide to stop or change your giving. The benefits of being a RHR Sustainer include:


  • Sustainers receive RHR newsletters and emails, with updates about our programs, their impact, as well as special events.

  • As a Sustainer, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that all of the critical programs at RHR are made possible with your ongoing support.



Volunteerism at Rocking Horse Ranch (RHR) is a critical cornerstone of our ability to serve the community. There are many opportunities for volunteering at RHR in a wide range of areas people of all ages can participate. Community involvement, including volunteering with the lesson program, helping with maintenance projects around the facility, or even serving on the Board of Directors, is vital to the success of RHR. We welcome your skills, passion, and energy!


All volunteers must be at least 14 years old. Interested in joining our volunteer team? Contact us by telephone at (252) 752-0153 or via e-mail at Our staff will help individuals get plugged in, taking advantage of each person’s unique skills and abilities to find the best role on the RHR team.

Derby Dash Bash

Rocking Horse Ranch’s Derby Dash Bash is the signature annual fundraising event for the organization. Money raised helps support operating expenses such as care of RHR horses, maintenance of the facility, insurance and utility costs, and employee salaries.  This year, the event will be held at Rocking Horse Ranch (Blue Banks Farm Rd.) in Greenville.


Those attending the Derby Dash Bash enjoy appetizers, drinks, dinner, dessert, live music, Derby race raffle, ladies Derby hat contest, games, silent and live auctions, and viewing of the Kentucky Derby. Weather permitting, some of our program horses join the party, and attendees will have a chance to meet them and to bid on a year's sponsorship for each one during the live auction.


Both individual and corporate sponsors are welcome, as well as community support through the sale of tickets. RHR truly appreciates the financial support!
