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.

…where horses touch the hearts of those that partner with them…
