Since 1991 the Swiftsure Ranch Therapeutic Equestrian Center has been enriching lives of individuals with disabilities through interaction with the horse. The healing power of the horse is clear. A man once too depressed to get out of bed cannot wait to arrive at the barn to see his four-legged best friend. A woman who suffered a brain injury from a car accident and was told by the doctors that she would never walk again takes her first steps after regaining strength from two years of regular riding lessons. A child born with impaired speech utters her first words as she asks her horse to “walk on”.
We invite you to take a look at the power of the horse and the miracles that take place at Swiftsure Ranch everyday. We hope that you will join us on this journey toward helping all individuals to live their lives to the fullest.
All of our riders participate at no charge thanks to the generous support of our donors and tireless volunteers.
