Inspiration Ranch exists to strengthen children, youth, and adults striving to overcome their physical, emotional, and social disabilities with Therapeutic Riding and equine-assisted therapy and activities. Each week over 70 special needs children and youth ride in our Therapeutic Riding Program to physically and emotionally strengthen their core muscles, improve their walking, and elevate their ability to communicate. Through our Mental Health Program, we reach people that have suffered severe emotional trauma. It’s here, on our 40-acre ranch, that we help them learn new boundaries, skills and overcome obstacles.
While it’s evident that these programs are vastly different from one another, the common thread is the highly trained and skilled horse coupled with the compassionate staff. We invite clients into an arena with horses to facilitate the therapeutic process. As a result, our clients can gain strength and insight into their nonverbal communication and behavior patterns. A non-judgmental and keenly trained horse can instinctively analyze and react to our body language and other nonverbal cues. They possess the remarkable gift to assess a situation quickly and encourage interaction – no matter the hurdle to overcome.
Every day, the team at Inspiration Ranch strives to break down stigmas, barriers and celebrates the inclusion of individuals that strive to reach new goals. We provide exceptional equine-assisted therapy and activities in a loving Christian environment.
