What We Do

Information Clinic: May 10 - 13, 2017

Registration for the 2017 Similar Ministry ​Information Clinic has closed.

Please call or email us if you have any questions.

We can also place you on an interest list to receive communication regarding next year's event.


In 2005, Crystal Peaks held its first annual Information Clinic. This venue was designed to assist others who were interested in starting or serving in a similar ranch or ministry. As a result of these clinics, we are thrilled to announce that over 200 new facilities are now in existence to serve children and families across the United States, Canada and abroad.

The Crystal Peaks Information Clinic is not only a time for individuals to learn the nuts and bolts of how to create a similar program, but it is also an opportunity for great challenge and encouragement. Participants are able to meet with like-minded folks from across the nation and beyond. By doing so, great bonds of support are forged and many ideas, obstacles and dreams are shared.

Because our program's effectiveness is based on the genuine hope found only in Christ, this message is central to each Clinic.

We cover the most relevant topics for those starting and maintaining a similar ministry. Some of these topics include:

  • Child & Horse Safety
  • Communicating with Kids
  • Basic Natural Horsemanship
  • Equine Herd Management
  • Daily Infrastructure
  • Staff & Volunteer Programming
  • Fundraising
  • Obtaining a 501(c)(3)
  • Legalities of non-profits​

Many of the sessions are a lecture/Q&A format, while other sessions will be observation-based. Because of the long, information-packed days, we ask that participants be at least 18 years of age. Click here for a Sample Schedule.
