ARRYR seeks to rescue, rehabilitate, and assist horses coming from challenging and painful places. Since our beginning in 2009, we have rescued, assisted, or adopted over 100 horses. Following a period of rest, veterinarian care if necessary, rehabilitation, and training, the horses that call the ranch home are paired with kids in our mentorship program.
Our mentorship session program is unique. Sessions are totally child-led and child-driven. We pair your child up with one horse and one or more leaders, depending on your child’s needs. The children are able to choose what they want to do that day during their sessions. It’s not always about the ride but about the relationship built between the horse, the leader, and the child. There are also kiddos who love chickens and don’t want to work with the horses. That’s okay!! The beauty of our program is that the child gets to choose what they need that day and what they would like to do. Each session is 60-90 minutes long, depending on the age of the child.
The final piece of our mission centers around serving the entire family unit. Parents/guardians/fosters are welcome to enjoy some quiet time around the ranch while we play with your children during the children’s session. We have 20 acres, so there is plenty of space to get away and relax. We also offer fellowship gatherings throughout the season, offering everyone a fun evening of food and community.
*Please note all parents/guardians are required to remain on-site during the child’s session.
“I am a full-custody single father of two young children. My kids have been through more adversity than anyone should endure. I also personally battle health issues. I’ve had a brain surgery and 5 heart surgeries, and have more brain surgeries to come. Money is very tight, and horses have just always been out of the question, despite how much my daughter dreamt of working with them. I learned about this program and applied. They quickly got back to me and got my kids started. First off, I feel like a great parent giving my child something she really wants. Most importantly, my daughter has found purpose. She has found something to look forward to. We have dealt with suicidal thoughts, and this program has been one of the things that she has grabbed onto for purpose. The people there are unbelievable. They treat you like family the first day, and you definitely feel that they are very sincere. What a blessing this program has been to my small family!”

“We have loved Rebecca and the amazing youth who have volunteered for 5 years. She is amazing with her vast experience with horses and special needs. The one place my child feels at home. No huge expectations, just the kindness and compassion that flow from “Ms. Rebecca” and her awesome ranch. The confidence and pride flow from Lauren’s face and others are blessed to have the experience here. Thank you for all you do and the amazing love you pour into each person who visits.”
