Each proposal form submitted is considered, prayed over and responded to in a timely manner. You may also contact the ranch speaking assistant at: speaking@cpyr.org or call 541-639-9530.

These messages cover Godliness in leadership, marriage, accountability and manhood. 

Troy has also traveled to similar ministry ranches throughout the nation and abroad to provide consultation, support and instruction in Resistance Free Horsemanship as a certified Richard Shrake clinician.
