The mission of Shadow Wing Ranch is to strengthen our community by developing healthy, resilient children through partnerships with horses and humans.
I started Shadow Wing Ranch to accomplish one goal and one goal only:
I could provide people – especially youth – a safe, encouraging environment where they could have connection with others, learn life skills and grow personally through guided experiences with horses. Shadow Wing Ranch is that refuge. Come and see why.
