About S.A.D.L.E.S. Ranch

We pride ourselves on the not-so-traditional ways to help others through our experiential counseling and learning programs at S.A.D.L.E.S., our nature based wellness and outdoor education learning center.

S.A.D.L.E.S stands for
Self – Acceptance – Discovery – Learning – Empowerment – Success

A Horse’s non-judgmental nature, compassion and inspiring presence allows you to get in touch with who you really are. For women it’s empowerment for families it’s connection and building better relationships, for children it’s a powerful and positive experience, and for veterans and first responders its peace of mind.

Another integral part of learning and self discovery is HOW we learn. Whether through our equine therapy, counseling, team building, conflict resolution, veterans and first responders non-profit, or outdoor education and home school programs; we provide you with a powerful and motivating “hands on” approach.  Stress, tension, anger and anxiety can push you forward at a pace that is counterproductive to a healthy life.

We invite you to find peace naturally and experience a wellness adventure of mind, body and spirit.
