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!
Haven Horse Ranch has once again done an exceptional job in 2017. Offering therapy to children with special needs, counseling to juveniles struggling to find their place in the world and special needs adults that are just looking for an activity to lift their spirits and boast their self esteem. The dedication of the management, staff and volunteers at the ranch is inspiring. This isn't just a job to them. I have personally seen them go above and beyond to help with fund raising events and even provide clean up when Mother Nature decided to gave us a hurricane to deal with. Their focus on making sure that the ranch can continue to provide a safe, clean and funded facility in which to provide their services to the community is really great to see. I look forward to many more opportunities to help them further their mission in the future.
I am constantly amazed with how God is using Haven Horse Ranch to improve the lives of children, teens, adults and their families in our area. The miracles and life changing experiences that are a daily occurrence at the ranch are no accident. It is the vision, hard work, and dedication of the staff and volunteers at the ranch along with God's plan that make the difference. Children speaking, walking and doing things for the first time that they were never "suppose" to do. Teens turning their lives around from the wrong pathes that they were on and learning that there is a different way to live. Adults who live everyday with limitations most of us cannot even begin to understand finding an escape and joy even if for a short time on the back of a horse. It all works, and it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to make that happen. This is what Haven Horse Ranch is all about!!! As a volunteer I can only wish that I had more time to spend helping with this mission, but it has been a blessing to help and I would encourage anyone with time, talents or the financial means to contribute as well.
Excellent staff. A very liberating fun experience. I look forward to my weekly appointment. Larry Hill
Haven Horse in St. Augustine Florida has helped my daughter receive equine therapy at an affordable cost. Her OT is great and we are pleased.
The therapists that work at the ranch are fantastic! The handlers are all super sweet and really know the horses and their different personalities. Everyone interacts so well with one another and the ranch itself is beautiful.
Great things happen at Haven Horse Ranch...
How they help children with special needs is out of this world. .
Seeing the changes these children have made doing equine therapy is priceless. ..
GOD bless those who work and volunteer at haven horse ranch
The owner is terribly rude and lacking in hospitality and good business manners. Staff is wonderful but the owner spoils the bunch...

We do our best to see that everyone has a great experience here at Haven Horse Ranch, keeping our mission and commitment to children with SPecial Needs first and foremost. Regrettably sometimes we fall short of meeting everyone's expectations and we apologize for that. We will continue to do our best to meet everyones needs and expectations and hope that if or perhaps when we fall short, we will be judged on our total efforts and not just one isolated incident.
My son participates in the therapy program at Haven. In only four months time, we have seen great improvements in his posture, patients and confidence. He truly lights up every week as he see Fancy walking towards him. I couldn't be more happy with the staff too! We feel like family.
I have had the pleasure of visiting Haven Ranch and was immediately struck at how much Love, compassion and hard work goes into this facility. They are truly making difference in other peoples lives and are nothing short of a Blessing.
I have visited Haven Ranch a few times, and just walking the grounds, meeting the folks and seeing the horse's, gives me a humble awww, feeling! Seeing and knowing how the ranch helps so many, is incredible! My mother in-law had MS, and over time, confined to a wheelchair. If we could have had a place such as Haven, what an experience she would have had! Mom didn't get the chance, but knowing so many others can experience the joy and knowing the confidence it instills is incredible! Thank You Haven Horse Ranch, for ALL that you do, and the LOVE you share thru the program of horses! So honored to know you, and see all you do thru HIS work!! Can't wait for another visit, and horse ride!!
