Spotlight On Success: Swiftsure Ranch
Swiftsure Ranch Therapeutic Equestrian Center is a local non-profit that has been providing equine-assisted therapies and activities in the Wood River Valley for 25 years.
Their mission is to encourage physical, cognitive and emotional well-being of children and adults with disabilities through the interaction with the horse. The vision is for everyone to leave their ranch feeling better than when they arrived.
Swiftsure Ranch currently is serving over 100 riders per week, with all sessions taught by certified therapeutic riding instructors and assisted by their specially trained volunteers. In addition to their regular weekly riders, Swiftsure Ranch serves another 100-150 riders per year through collaborations with other non-profits such as the Boise VA Hospital, Camp Rainbow Gold, Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind, and Higher Ground. Their services are provided free of charge to all participants and they are humbled to live and work in a community that fully supports their programs!
