If we can reach the youth of today, it is our future for tomorrow.
This is the vision of Iron Horse Christian Youth Ranch. (IHCYR)
We believe in combining the therapeutic qualities of horses with
biblical principles to develop character and confidence. John15:5
IHCYR is a non-profit 501(c)3 CHA Program whose primary focus
is equine education and resource center. Our goal is to ensure safety
respect, honesty and communication. IHCYR is a family-friendly
setting for horse lovers of all ages and individuals with special needs.
Horsemanship instruction is provided privately by a CHA Instructor and the free Horse Time following the Educational classes offered.
Certified Horsemanship Association's mission is to advance excellence
in horsemanship, safety and education to benefit individuals and
group riding programs. The Safe, Fun and effective CHA way!
We offer care and rehabilitation training to the horses, ponies, and various animals that we can offer support. Through the last 13 years many have found their forever homes, donated to other therapy programs or adopted for other programs or individuals. Each horse has their own story, or have their wings.
