Empowering youth and young adults with special needs through impactful, meaningful equine connections in a ranch setting.

The ranch becomes a learning landscape. Using a hands-on, horse-based approach, ELSA serves its participants with  carefully tailored connections to horses and horse handling.

We offer programs for individuals, families, groups, agencies, schools and other nonprofits interested in equine-assisted activities. Participants learn about themselves and others through human-animal interactions and activities designed to facilitate connections.

Why horses?

The horse is a multi-sensory partner who enables the participant to integrate physically and emotionally. Bonding between horse and human facilitates both relaxation and excitement that promotes self-awareness, confidence, communication and learning.
