About the Houston Airport Rangers:
The Airport Rangers Program is the only airport equestrian volunteer program in the United States. It was created in 2003 to increase the security of George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) through community participation. The program was a hit from the start. Enrollment quickly surpassed 200 members, and thousands of patrol hours have been added to the security system at IAH.
