Welcome to Reigning Grace Youth Ranch
Our Mission: Redeem the Horse and Child; Strengthen the Family;
Discover the Spirit.
Reigning Grace Ranch supports its mission of Redemption, Strength and Discovery by creating a space of tranquility, peace, and refuge at our 15-acre ranch that is home to some 40 rehabilitated and rescued horses, goats, chickens, donkeys and a cow…named Norman. We strive to create a healing sanctuary in our community for those who need it most - Arizona at-risk youth, Arizona Foster kids and at-risk families.
Reigning Grace Ranch is a unique non-profit ranch that believes in second chances. We believe that no horse or human should be given up on. Our ranch family believes everyone and every horse has the capacity to find their inner strength and has a gift to share, no matter their past. We help children and families believe that they are a “worthwhile somebody” by bringing horses, children, mentors, families and volunteers together in an authentic working ranch environment. We offer equine-guided mentorship and equine-guided experiential learning to youth, families andveterans. We strengthen the mind, body and soul and elevate the spirit of our families through traditional core values. Our goal is to experience what it means to work hard or have “grit" for what they have, be a part of something bigger than they are, develop self confidence, experience teamwork, accountability, love, safety, trust, encouragement and hope without judgment. This is powerful stuff for a little horsin’ around!
Hear our Story
The Horse is powerful, beautiful and strong
It is honest and present in the moment. The lesson from a horse is that they will never forget where they have come from but they don’t carry the burden into the present because it would endanger the herd.
At Reigning Grace Ranch, we believe in second chances. We believe that if a spirit is placed in the right environment, given love and the correct attention necessary for growth, it will blossom into a successful member of our society. What makes our program unique is that most of the 35-40 horses that live on the ranch have been rescued from violent abuse or life threatening neglect themselves. These extraordinary horses each have their own stories of triumph and hope. By placing these rehabilitated horses in partnership with children and families that are also trying to heal from a traumatic event in their life, magic happens!
This is why this partnership of the redeemed horse and human is beautiful. It just works!
