Are you wondering what we are all about?
The mission of the Whaley Ranch is to provide a safe environment allowing youth to
grow, heal and gain life skills to develop into strong individuals for a successful future.
The Whaley Ranch offers programs geared towards helping youth grow and heal.
By utilizing Equine Assisted Learning and mentorship this promotes a safe and
fun environment allowing youth to develop as individuals.
Unfortunately depression and suicide are way too high among youth today.
We feel one way we can help is to provide a safe environment to get youth outside and in nature.
Our animals love attention from students and love to love students back. Studies
have shown that animals can provide security and calmness to people.
Not only do animals provide much needed love and affection for youth but we also do workshops
to teach students about our animals, how to care for them, etc. During exercises of how to
care for the different animals students will also learn how to communicate with their teammates,
share and work as a team. These are all skills they will need to be successful adults.
What a better way to help our youth than with animals.
