What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Restoration Ranch Military Veteran Equine Partnership Program

Our veterans program is a unique horsemanship program designed as a recreational and community-building opportunity for retired military families. Veterans and their family members work one-on-one with a horse and a coach while enjoying the camaraderie of other military families and volunteers. The ranch setting offers a relaxed, non-competitive environment where the focus is on learning how to help rehabilitating horses re-establish bonds of trust with people.

The foundation of the program is based on developing a working partnership with the horse. Participants learn to use body language and rope position to clearly communicate and direct the horse. They are asked to actively observe the horse’s response and adjust their own actions accordingly. This process of asking, observing and comparing responses, helps participants begin to develop a feel for the horse and learn how to improve the quality of their work together.
