We also believe in team work, having fun in all that we do. We intern also grow and learn many new things from our participants during their stay with us at our Ranch. We have our participants participate with us in our day to day activities, they are included in some of the holidays that we may go on such as going to the mountains to ride horses and other holidays experiences. We also allow all of our participants to ride our trained horses. If they are coming in with little experience i spend time teaching them how to ride if time permits, work with the horses so that they can learn and are able to work with me. We are looking for participants that desire to stay for 3 months plus. This allows our participants to truly have a chance to enjoy all that we have to offer.

    What else ...

    We are a Christian Home, We pray before meal and also go to Church. However my participants are free to come with us or not. If they feel that they don't want to come they don't have to. Their Choice. On their free time they are free to ride, go sigh seeing, take pictures they can do what ever they want. If they need to go to town, I can drive them in as we do go to town a couple times a week for supply.

    We prefer to have a non smokers participants and non Vegetarians.
