Son Valley Youth Ranch features children, youth, and women programs, using their rescued horses, to share the love of Jesus with the tristate communities. Come there to find a peaceful place to enjoy God’s creation. There many children and young women coming from hard circumstances. They may have been sexually abused, experienced being in foster care or have family issues. For this we offer our one/one horse sessions (FBAEP). To help prevent homelessness or sex trafficking, we offer housing to young women that need a family setting in our Legacy Cabins.
