I have seen first hand the impact this ranch has made on many lives. . .troubled youth that went from a detention center to a local private college because of the lessons learned at the ranch. . . Children walk unaided when doctors had all but given up on them. . . Autistic youth speak their first words from atop their trusted equine friend. . .physically challenged adults develop their core and balance to improve their quality of life, and a young boy play catch with his dad for the first time. . .a gift neither expected but both cherish. These are the clients, but the volunteers and staff also speak of the awe, the renewed sense of wonder they get to experience by working with these wonderful horses and the clients whose lives are changed forever.
