ABOUT WHY RANCH
The White Horse Youth Ranch is Las Vegas’ only free horsemanship training program serving socially challenged youth in our city. Socially challenged simply means having a difficult time relating, interacting, and growing through social situations with confidence especially in adverse situations. Socially challenged youth are our kids who are falling through the cracks in our society due to being bullied, facing various forms of abuse inside and outside the home, dealing with a death, divorce or any other situation causing withdrawal and strained family relationships.
WHY Ranch offers a safe place for kids to come and experience personal healing and growth while building a loving and connected relationship with their horse. As our kids are changed from the inside out, our families are strengthened. As our families are being rebuilt, our communities become stronger and that means our city is better.
WHY Ranch Staff and Volunteers are not licensed therapists for children or their families.
WHY Ranch is a ranch of hope using the application of the proven principles of respect, empathy and acceptance while providing an environment of love as demonstrated by Christ.
