News and Upcoming Events

Stepping Stones Ranch is on the move…
Posted on July 23, 2014

These pictures are just a glimpse of how beautiful our new property is for Stepping Stones Ranch. We are moving to our new location in Wilmington on 975 SR 380 (The former Stonewall Farm) and we have been blessed above and beyond with more than we could have imagined or asked for! But we are simply blessed to be a blessing! We will be expanding our equine assisted learning programs, rhythmic riding for trauma informed learning and now include riding lessons. In addition, we are currently taking reservations for boarding and turn out services. Renovations are underway as we begin a fundraising campaign to build an indoor arena and renovate our children’s home. We will be posting details and more pictures along the way of how you can help us reach more families across Clinton County and Southwest Ohio.
