From our ranch family
Interested in applying?
"I enjoy the interaction with the side walkers and other riders. I enjoy the opportunity to ride a horse.I like Hooch a lot! I always look forward to my ridding sessions and the time at Helping Hands and Horses.
- Adam Christman, rider
"When we began our journey at the ranch, Noah barely spoke, did not engage with anyone, had poor motor skills, and had trouble walking and sitting without falling down. Since that first session, we have seen him grow leaps and bounds. Not only has his speech, sensory, and motor skills improved, he has a newfound confidence."
- Shannon Mederios, parent
