Equine-Assisted Education, Therapy, Growth & Learning

We are grounded in the heart of Crook County, Oregon, but travel as far as our feet, hooves and wheels will carry us in effort to work with others towards a healthy and just future. With that same focus on growth and learning, we welcome others to join us for sessions here at home.

and Giving Tuesday outreach – enjoy the slideshow below!


HORSES at the Ranch is working to cultivate and inspire personal journeys of healing and growth, through trauma-informed, evidence-based and integrative equine-facilitated programs.


People overcome barriers to self-sufficiency and success, develop leadership, find inspiration and build community through comprehensive programs in equine-facilitated therapy.

Who we serve

We are a trauma-informed organization, sharing over 30 years of experience, offering programs for women, veterans and young people. We are mobile, with capacity to bring empowering programs to schools, groups and communities throughout Central Oregon.

What we do

We offer both individual and group therapy sessions to support and facilitate healing of a variety of conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, substance abuse and recovery, behavioral and social difficulties. Programming focused on growth and learning are available to support communication, collaboration, social-emotional skills, anti-bullying, resilience, teamwork and leadership. We offer help for children and adults.

We offer comprehensive, confidential and evidence-based services through a professionally accredited staff, a licensed Mental Health team, and well-trained and cared for equine partners and community volunteers.
