Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch Horse Sponsorship Program

Our horses, with the majority of them coming from backgrounds of abuse and neglect, are at the very core of what we do here at Crystal Peaks. These equines, once broken, lost and hurting, are now doted on by children who have been through many similar circumstances. The experiences of the horses give them the ability to reach out to kids in a unique way, making them what we call "equine counselors."

For the many equines who call this place home, Crystal Peaks offers a safe haven, a gentle hand and a life purpose. Our training and riding methods are based on the theories of natural horsemanship, which utilize quietness and patience to communicate with horses in their own language. It is our aim to develop trusting relationships with these magnificent creatures.

Please consider sponsoring one of our "equine counselors." By simply choosing a sponsorship level, you can further ensure quality care to our horses and a cost free opportunity to the children who call this their special place. Your sponsorship will provide aid for the following:

  • Countless hours one-on-one with a child and leader
  • Daily engagement both physically and mentally
  • Lots of grooming, baths and carrots
  • Daily hay and grain as needed
  • Vitamins and supplements as needed
  • Regular preventative vaccinations
  • Professional farrier trimming and shoeing as needed
  • Tack and equipment replacement and repair
  • Contributions to the Equine Rehabilitation and Rescue Fund*become-a-horse-sponsorhorse-sponsor-bend-oregon

*The Equine Rehabilitation and Rescue Fund is an account that has been established to act as a medical "insurance fund" for the ranch horses. Its secondary purpose is to assist in the funding of horse rescues.

This agreement in no way entitles sponsor to ownership and/or exclusive privileges in any way to sponsored animal or ranch property. CPYR accepts all liability, expressed and/or implied, for sponsored equine. Sponsor has the right to cancel this agreement with a 30 day notice to CPYR administration. All monies received from sponsor to date of cancellation remain the property of CPYR. Please note that there may be more than one sponsor per equine. This is to ensure that all of our horses are cared for equally, as the funds go into an account to support our whole herd.

Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch has been established a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization by the Internal Revenue Service. All donations are tax deductible.

We love staying connected with those who choose to support the ministry at the Ranch through the Horse Sponsorship program. To show appreciation for this kind gift, each sponsorship will receive a 4x6 picture of your horse, a Ranch T-shirt, and a quarterly update on your sponsored horse.

To become a sponsor, please complete and return the Horse Sponsorship form. We will send you a packet of information about your horse right away, as well as quarterly updates.
