Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
McCrossan Boys Ranch is committed to supporting youth, strengthening families and providing "New Hope for a Better Life." At McCrossan Boys Ranch we serve boys ages 9-20 that have been abused, abandoned, neglected, or have faced some kind of trouble in their homes, schools or communities.
For the past 60 years, horses have been a part of our program teaching the youth responsibility, hard work and the therapeutic benefits of horses. We have one of the only licensed equine therapists in the state of South Dakota working at the Ranch. We have approximately 40 horses at McCrossan Boys Ranch and a very well known draft horse hitch program that travels the US.
