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 unconditional love of a horse during 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 youth program.

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


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.”
