Welcome to the heart of Rustic Way Ranch—our diverse herd of animals. Each member of our herd, from the noble horses to the playful barn cats, plays a vital role in the therapeutic journey of our teens. Their unique personalities and natural empathy make them perfect companions for those seeking solace and healing.

Meet Our Equine Partners

Our horses are more than just animals; they are empathetic healers and trusted friends. Their intuitive nature allows for a deep emotional connection with teens, fostering a sense of trust and mutual understanding. Through activities like grooming, riding, or just being in their calming presence, our horses help teens break through emotional barriers, gain confidence, and discover inner peace.

Small Creatures, Big Impact

Beyond our horses, Rustic Way Ranch is home to a variety of animals including dogs, cats, ducks, and chickens. These smaller creatures contribute significantly to our nature-based therapy. Interacting with them offers teens a chance to experience the tranquility of ranch life, helping them find moments of calm and joy amidst the natural surroundings.
