Horse Care

At Inspiration Ranch we know that our horses provide the healing that our participants and families need and cannot find in another therapeutic setting. We honor our horses by maintaining an approach of partnership, focusing on their well-being and positive relationships between them and our volunteers, clients, and staff. By doing so, we hope to keep our horses happy, healthy, and healing our families for many years!

 

Horses thrive when their care, handling and environment is most like their natural tendencies. As such, we embrace natural horsemanship, including the following: 

 

  • Boarding – Inspiration Ranch’s horses live outside 24/7 in a herd environment. in 2015 we created a natural living area for our horses that promotes movement in a herd environment.

  • Handling – Staff members work with a natural horsemanship trainer on a regular basis and then in turn train the volunteers so the complete team has a similar approach to horse handling that focuses on safety, partnership, confidence, and FUN! 

  • Hoof Care – Inspiration Ranch’s horses are barefoot and have overcome prior hoof conditions and shoeing by the attentive care of a barefoot trimmer 

  • Diet - horses' digestive systems are designed for constant nibbling; our horses have access to hay at all times and are supplemented with necessary vitamins and minerals
