Since 1995, Crystal Peaks has been involved in the rescue of more than 300 horses. Because the ranch was founded in part as an equine rehabilitation facility, our horses often arrive devastated by the effects of neglect, starvation and violent abuse. Children rally with the staff in creating a devoted team of support for the weak and battered equine. Together, encircled in the loving embrace of a leader; the wounded hearts of both child and horse, find healing.

Currently, the nine-acre ranch supports 30 resident horses.

Since most of our equine counselors are themselves survivors of abuse and neglect, they are uniquely equipped to work with children who are also enduring hardship. Fortified with the will of a survivor and the heart of a victor, our horses lead children by their own example to keep choosing to move through their troubled times toward hope.
