PRTR Is Growing!

We’ve expanded our Outpatient Therapy Programs, to include:
Our programs are tailored for individual and group treatment for pre-school, home-school, after-school, teens, transition age, adults, and families. Learn more by selecting Therapy Programs.


Since 2009, Promise Ranch has grown from having just one instructor and a handful of students, to having four PATH Int’l. Certified instructors, an Occupational Therapist, an Occupational Therapy Assistant, a Physical Therapist, and between 60 and 90 riders each week!

We also have an amazing team of compassionate, dedicated volunteers, and 10 wonderful therapy horses who help to make our program possible.

Dear Promise Ranch Community

The Madison Strong Fund was created in honor of local 8th grade student Madison Cleveland. Madison was known best to her friends and family as an incredibly creative, graceful, an active thirteen year old whose love for her family, friends, horses and dogs outweighed all other things in life. Please go to our “Madison Strong” page to learn more and to donate in her honor and memory to carry on her beautiful spirit.
