Come now and enjoy the picturesque Children’s Autism & Horse Therapy Ranch, nestled among the rolling hills of beautiful southern Mississippi!

In addition to that, you’ll also be working alongside an amazing team all working towards a worthwhile cause of ranch therapy, making a difference for kids with special needs. The Children’s Autism & Horse Therapy focuses on helping all children with autism and other special needs and is free to every child that is in dire need of some help. This method done by the project has proven over the years to produce good results however, with a little help form you we can make an even bigger positive impact on the lives of these kids!
