**Seek out one of the many benches on the ranch for privacy, quiet reflection, and prayer.

*Waiver must be signed at check in

 

**Be kind at all times

 

***No smoking is allowed on the premises.

 

*No bare feet or sandals. Everyone must wear a closed toe shoe on premises.

 

**Helmets are required to remain on child while around horses. Even if they are not riding.

 

*** Beware! Horses may kick or bite.

 

*No running or yelling.

A release form will also be required to be filled out and signed for each child upon arrival of your child's first session with WAYR. For a copy of this form to print you may click here. 

PLEASE NOTE: The session program here at WAYR has one main purpose... to Mentor the Child. There are many different activities used in each session to accomplish this. Some of these activities include crafts, games, chores, spending time with, grooming, and riding a horse. All activities are weather   dependent and are chosen at the discretion of the session leader.

 

Know that WAYR has a commitment to be there to mentor your child. Our voluteers take time out of their day to provide your child with the grace and love that is needed. We also, need your commitment as a parent to bring your child to each session that is scheduled for them. Not showing up at all or giving us ample time to find someone to fill your child's appointment slot takes away from another child who could benefit from WAYR. Please contact us at least 24 hours in advance to cancel/reschedule your child's session. 

 

 

 

Our insurance requires that every visitor complete a WAYR release form, regardless of the nature of your visit, each year. You may view and print this form here or one will be supplied to you on your child's first session.

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.
