A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who supported this Therapy Horse Training Program!

All of the horses that went through this training program are being used in therapeutic programs at the ranch.  


In 2014 we are expanding our youth program that focuses on children in foster care.  To date, we are experiencing great success with this program and we receive wonderful feedback from the group home staff as well as the therapists and guardians who oversee the children on a daily basis.


We are very proud of all of the horses and the children will carry their memories of them for a lifetime!


YOU are the reason that this project is successful, without donors like you none of this would be possible.  Not only are these wonderful horses getting a second chance at a wonderful life, but the children are getting to experience the joy and happiness that comes to them because of these beautiful animals. Thank you again for helping make this project possible and touching so many lives.
