Mountain River Youth Ranch ┬áprovides a safe and positive outdoor equestrian experience for children and their families on a working ranch in Snohomish, WA. We facilitate the joining up of the heart of a child with the love of a horse for a time designed just for them. A horse’s desire for relationship and their slow heartbeat are just two of their qualities that make them great partners for our equine program.

We have seen that giving even a little can impact a child’s heart, altering the trajectory of their path. Our equine program renews hope and builds resilience to support the healing of struggling and at-risk children, ages 6-18.

It was born out of a passion for all children to know they are loved and cherished for who they are by a God who will never leave them nor forsake them.

Mountain River Youth Ranch is a non-profit, faith-based equine program.

“What a great, loving place! I can’t wait to take my kids back; if they could go daily, they would!
Awesome ministry that could benefit so many people, regardless of age.”
