"Classroom in the Dirt"
Welcome to our Classroom in the Dirt Youth Empowerment program at DH Ranch, where nature's embrace becomes medicine for the spirit, and every moment is infused with the transformative power of empowerment. Surrounded by the presence of horses, participants embark on a journey of self-discovery and cultural immersion. Through relay racing, horsemanship, and rodeo events, our children build not only skills but also self-esteem and confidence. Laughter and fun reverberate through our calm and safe space, as meaningful relationships and connections with the land and each other deepen. Guided by our dedicated team of facilitators, each interaction is an opportunity for growth, while Tsuut'ina Gunaha language development adds another layer of cultural richness. In this sanctuary of horse-assisted learning, every child finds their voice and their place. We will not turn any child away. Together, we journey toward empowerment, hand in hand, one hoofprint at a time. This program is free.
Embark on a transformative journey through beauty of DH Ranch on our immersive trail ride experience. As you mount our gentle horses and set off where the hoofbeats echo the heartbeat of the land.
