Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The mission of Rosie's Ranch is to provide a family-centered atmosphere where children with deafness or oral language challenges expand their listening, verbal and literacy skills by engaging in activities with horses and "neighborhood friends", under the guidance of highly trained and qualified staff.

Horse-related programs:
ALL of our programs involve the magic of the equine connection and house an inclusion model where children with and WITHOUT special needs are joined together for the purpose of learning to ride and care for horses and they end up learning and caring about each other.<br />All programs require safe practices and the use of helmets.<br /><br />Parent & Tot Sessions: Language enrichment sessions for children and their parents from ages 1 to 5years.

Wish List Items

Camper's Clubhouse Needs Finishing
Join the Rosie's Ranch family for our Spring work day. We are focusing on the Camper's Club House Project that needs its final touches.
Volunteer your time, send items, or make a donation and we will do the work. We need: front decorative door (barn door style), insulation, and interior sheet rock. It's home away from home for many of our day campers! The Camper's Clubhouse provide a sense of community and a safe place where we are all the same...viewing the horses from the bay window. This inspires conversation, drawing and writing. Join us!

Literacy Project 2017
Rosie's Ranch is giving every day camper and every Parent and Tot Family a copy of the book, Horses and Ponies. We have ordered 400 books to give away. Our campers will be reading to each other, reading to the horses and ponies and will take the book home at the end of the week. Join us in funding this project.
