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.
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.
