Horses Helping People

Redeem the past. Restore peace.
And Renew hope for a brighter future.

One step at a time.

According to Jeremiah 29:11, we believe that each student has a plan and a purpose for their life and we provide support along their journey, one step at a time.

Stepping Stones Ranch

Stepping Stones Ranch supports the opportunity for life change offering equine assisted learning, individualized academic programs and life skills to help students develop their potential for a brighter future.

We are passionate about helping youth who may have personal, family or academic struggles. We are a residential youth ranch offering students and their family experiential opportunities to learn, grow and work together towards healing their relationships. We are focused on breaking the cycles of negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors by replacing them with positive, healthy life skills.

Dar & Danielle were accepted into the WINGS initiative training at Eagle Ranch in 2010 for the development of their youth ranch. They also have attended Wears Valley Ranch on several occasions to be mentored by their founder and staff. Both Wears Valley Ranch and Eagle Ranch have been successful programs for over 20 years in reaching at-risk youth.

Dar & Danielle have been EAGALA certified since 2010, and attend trainings annually for continuing education and development of programs. Stepping Stones Ranch is an approved EAGALA facility.
