While each child comes with different needs they will have seperate and unique time spent exclusively with the same mentor and the same horse for each session. The children will then develop positive motivation and self-esteem in their journey towards hope. All therapeutic ministry will take place at the ranch under direct supervision of a mentor. These sessions will be approximately 90 minutes.
