Watching Lacey work with the students is a true gift! I have watched students make true leaps and bounds of progress, and in the few months I’ve seen her work, their confidence has skyrocketed.
We took the kids a couple of weeks ago to Haven horse ranch. Every day since then all I have heard is " when can we go back". Their instructor Lacey was very patient and knowledgeable, and not only taught them the proper way to ride a horse but also showed them the responsibilities of taking care of a horse. She was very professional, and the kids had a wonderful time. We will be back soon.
This organization has such a great team to work with! Their methods are so helpful and result in great improvements for their clients that may have been struggling with other therapies. You can feel the passion as soon as you step foot on their site and I hope they can continue their work for many years to come!
My dads friend works there and let’s me help out with the horses and it’s really fun and the horses are HILARIOUS!!!! And I love going over there and helping out!!
Haven Horse Ranch is one of the best non profit organizations I’ve ever been with. I have been with lot of other nonprofit including one other therapeutic riding centers. In my opinion haven does way more then the past one I’ve been with not only do they focus on the child/adults disabilities but on how they can grow grow on there future as a rider. They have such a strong passion for the health of their horses.
This place is absolutely amazing! Such a great oppurtunity to learn how to horse back ride and get to experience such a great thing! Haven horse ranch does trail rides and lessons!
I am a Therapist here at Haven Horse Ranch and I receive so much joy in helping adults and children benefit from therapeutic horse back riding. I love meeting new people and I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to be apart of a great cause.
We love riding our horse Orion! My Daughter knows what day "horse day" is and gets so excited the whole day!
I am a volunteer at HHR and enjoy everyday I'm there! Its relaxing and enjoyable to work with the horses and kids.
This is a wonderful organization, who brings smiles, happiness and changes the lives of so many children and adults. Not only do they help the special needs and trouble kids and adults, they offer programs where a child can just come learn to ride. This isn't a place where is just about putting someone on a horse and riding around, the employees and volunteers here care about seeing someone smile, have a good time and learn! The people here do this because they want to help, they want to be a part of changing someones life and they love what they do, they spend long hours and dedicate a lot of their own time to help everyone who comes here.
Haven Horse Ranch is wonderful! The staff is professional, friendly, and respectful. The ranch is a clean and safe environment. My daughter loves attending camp and lessons at Haven Horse Ranch. They are dedicated to providing equine therapy to clients. Thank you for a terrific experience!
My 9 year old daughter has taken lessons for over a year now, and has attended multiple weeks of summer camps since she was 4. She loves it and she's learned many valuable life lessons while there, such as personal responsibility, independence, and strength of character. I love that they are instructed to do everything needed to take care of a horse, to try and problem solve by themselves first, and then ask for help. They have really helped my daughter to mature and grow into a self sufficient and confident horse rider.
Haven Horse Ranch truly excells at being a Great Nonprofit organization. To watch individuals whether child or adult receive such wonderful care and support from the staff to reach their fullest potential is a blessing! To see a child that could not control their own actions take control of a 1100 pound animal and ride around the arena is truly amazing. Watching an adult smile and laugh after riding around the pen after being so depressed they didn’t care if they lived or died. These miricles happen continuously at Haven Horse Ranch!
I have had the honor as a board member of Haven Horse Ranch to see happy smiles from therapy students as well as riding students. When a student wants to show how well they are performing, it speaks volumes of the program, staff, and their commitment to the organization! If you are looking for a program where the student is number one, then Haven Horse Ranch is the place!
My son has been a client at Haven Horse Ranch for several years, and he has shown steady improvement with his sensory processing disorder, among his other issues tied to Asperger's Syndrome and Bipolar /Depression. The therapists havery had their work cut out for them with Sammy, and they have succeeded in helping him cope with everyday life and even find some enjoyment. Living and coping with the multitude of issues that accompany a diagnosis such as Sammy's can seem puzzling and impossible at times, but hippotherapy has been the only thing that has worked for my son. I HIGHLY recommend this type of therapy and the therapists at Haven Horse Ranch are an extremely caring bunch. Thank you!
The therapists at Haven Horse Ranch have helped my son extensively with problems related to Asperger's Syndrome, namely Sensory Processing Disorder. He could only bear to wear clothing 3 sizes too big for him, but through the hippotherapy program and patience of the staff, he is now wearing clothing the correct size and doing much better emotionally. No other type of therapy worked! Thank you!
What a wonderful place to volunteer at! The change you see in the people's faces, their emotions, etc. after riding a horse is remarkable. Equine-assisted therapy helps children, teenagers, and adults who have various illnesses and injuries. People come to Haven Horse Ranch and are withdrawn, distant, agitated, etc., and then when they get on that horse, their whole world changes for the better. As a medical professional (RN, Paramedic) and a human being, I cannot speak highly enough of Haven Horse Ranch.
