Since 2010, we've been 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.

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.
