In the tradition of giving to the ones we love, February is the month for Carousel Wishes & Valentine Kisses.
At Carousel Ranch, equestrian therapy takes our students into a new, unexplored world, and provides a sense of independence and freedom that defies their disability. Exercises performed on the back of the horse challenge our riders in ways that they have seldom been challenged before.
This program prepares young adults with special needs for what's next after high school. Combining a classroom curriculum with real work experiences is what makes RTW! unique. From horse and ranch care to vehicle washing, construction, office work, retail, food service and working a cash register to working in our Carousel Farms garden, each student comes out far "readier to work".
In July of 1997, Carousel Ranch was started by Becky Graham and Denise Redmond. The program began with one student and one horse in Becky’s neighbor’s backyard. Sometimes it is hard to believe that so much has happened over 20 years, and today the Ranch is so much more than we ever dared to dream.
