Our core program, teaches adapted riding skills to children and adults with physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioral challenges. All participants work towards individualized goals in a safe, fun and compassionate environment.

NEW in 2019 Equine Assisted Learning where participants from elementary, middle and high school come to the Ranch to work with our Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning, our horses and trained volunteers weekly throughout the school year.
Our facilities include Indoor and Outdoor arenas, sensory trail and classroom adapted for our clients’ needs.

PRRC Volunteer Program

While the Potter’s Ranch Wranglers have always been our steady source for volunteers, this year the Barn offers even more volunteer opportunities for those who love horses & serving others. Become a Side WALKER, Horse HANDLER, Trail GUIDE, or give horse baths & clean stalls and earn the opportunity to become a Potter’s Ranch Praise Rider! Our Praise Riders are an all-volunteer drill team that performs a precision drill to Christian Music at Annual Ranch Round-Up Fundraising Gala. Email joellen@pottersranch.org for your Volunteer packet! See you at the RANCH!
 
2019 proved to be a year of Baby BLESSINGS!

We received Norfleets Hy Sierra (barn name Sierra) in September of 2018, in February it became apparent Sierra was having a baby! On May 26, 2019 the Ranch welcomed a Dun Colored Colt to the herd. We held a Facebook name the baby contest and PAYSON STORM was the winning name, and of course Payson was a huge hit during summer camp. Payson will begin his training here at the Ranch in a New Program for 2020. (Stay tuned for more details to come)
We were also Blessed with 3 baby fainting goats (again a surprise God had in store for us) Hannah and Hope joined the Petting Zoo in September and we were blessed with Isaiah in February and then Ezekiel and Isabella in March.

AMOS was donated to the Ranch in March of 2019 by Kelly Pulley of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Amos has been a huge addition to the Petting Zoo and to Our Ranch Summer Horse Camp programs! Each week we had a different theme and Amos was a Pirate for “Q” marks the spot Treasure Hunt week, a jester for Medieval Mayhem week, a COWBOY for Wild, Wild West Week and GOLD Medal Winner for Ranch Olympics Week! 
Amos is a name that means “to bear a burden”, it’s also a name of a book in the Bible but we also learned from one of our Children’s home boys that AMOS means “Add Me On Snapchat” Amos says, “You are welcome to add him on Snapchat-if you can find him there!”
